NHS England and NHS Improvement established the Children and Young People Transformation Programme Team to take forward commitments on keeping children well, improving quality of care, integrating services, and including children and young people in all that they do.

During 2020/21 the programme team will work with local areas to develop integrated models of care for children and young people. Health and care systems will work together to achieve more joined up services that cater for the needs of children and young people across primary, secondary and specialist care; between mental health and physical health; between National Health Service public health and education; and between children, adolescent and adult services. This will include health and care for children and young people with disabilities.
