Children’s health conditions tend to be rarer and more complex, and specialist expertise in children’s healthcare is spread out far and wide across the country.
Our network allows specialists from different parts of the country to share experiences and data, to access peer-to-peer support and to learn from each other.
By collaborating in this way, we can confidently adopt best practice – without re-inventing the wheel – and find new opportunities to advance research and discovery into childhood conditions.

The collective expertise of the Children’s Hospital Alliance Trusts, and their access to a national cohort of patients, represents a unique opportunity to:
Lead on transformation for children and young people’s services and support the national effort to cut waiting lists
Develop and scale innovation – from safe models of virtual care to help keep children close to home to predictive AI to support clinical decision-making and target additional support to families affected by health inequalities.
The network bridges the gap between policy-makers and the frontline of care and has a track record of delivering NHS commitments in a way that works best for patients and families.
With a health service facing huge challenges – from growing waiting lists, to emergency care pressures and an aging population – child health tends to receive less public and political attention.
Our hospitals see the impacts of any failure to prioritise children’s health on their lives and on those of their families, everyday.
We are committed to working with our partners across the UK to increase the understanding and awareness of the most urgent health needs and challenges for our nation’s children and help design and deliver the solutions that will drive a more equitable system.
