NHS specialist services
The Department of Health and NHS England recommends management of craniosynostosis to be carried out in one of four major well-resourced highly specialised centres.
What is Craniofacial Surgery?
Craniofacial services will recognise the impact of having a craniofacial condition upon the individual and the family from birth to maturity. Multidisciplinary care will be provided to allow for the changing needs of the family and individual as the child passes from infancy to adolescence and adulthood and will incorporate transition needs. Patient and family interaction with support groups is a recognised need, and annual joint awayday meetings are held to foster these links between the highly specialised units, patients and families, and the various national support groups. Opportunity is taken to explain the philosophy and evidence base of care, and respond to comments/concerns on service provision and patient experience.
