PICS has created this page to post information on Covid-19 infection relevant to the paediatric critical care community.
PICS is working with Simon Kenny (National Clinical Director), RCPCH, NHS England, and the National Emergency Critical Care Committee to advise on Covid policy relevant to critically ill children and to co-ordinate planning with our key partners.
On this page of our website we will aim to post up to date and relevant guidance, but please remember to check the Public Health England webpages for up to date general guidance on covid-19 infection (https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-list-of-guidance)
