Medicines in Specialist Schools (MISS)

Hello friends. A colleague of mine, Dominic Wall, who is also part of our ‘Medicines in Specialist Schools’ (MISS) group produced this excellent presentation for the SSAT Conference this week. SSAT has kindly allowed us to share it with you.

The MISS group was formed in November 2019 to try to articulate the discrepancies in Health provision across England into our specialist provisions. It meets regularly with the DfE and Dept. for Health to voice our concerns around, initially, the postcode lottery for nursing provision. It is ultimately our intention to then focus on physiotherapy, OT and SALT provision.

A great deal of work has gone on behind the scenes and we are of the understanding that CCG’s are slowly re-examining their commissioning arrangements to fulfil their legal obligations to our children and young people.

This presentation, in particular, focuses on the needs of children and young people with more complex health care, including those with AGP’s. By the way, did you all clock the DfE’s latest guidance on this issue returning to the use of FFP2/3’s for interventions?

Your comments and feedback would be much appreciated. Many thanks to Dominic and the SSAT for sharing.
