This Pathway is to be used for children and young people (age 0-19 years) who fulfil the assessment criteria for children with exceptional healthcare needs (CEN). However, professionals may find that they wish to include the larger group of children with complex needs if the Pathway proves to be helpful and encourages better and timely access to service. The pathway should be used by all practitioners who work with children with exceptional healthcare needs and will be made available for families as a source of information.
