Children's Hospital Guidelines

This site is currently under construction and guidelines posted here represent a small sample of those used at BRHC

Clinical guidelines are used by the health professionals at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children for a wide range of conditions, treatments and tests.Please choose the GPs tab above for some of the current guidelines available for use in surgeries.

The paediatric clinical guidelines presented on this site have been developed by clinicians at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW). The purpose of the guidelines is to assist clinicians with the assessment and management of medical conditions affecting children with the aim of improving patient care. Such guidelines have been approved by the Clinical Effectiveness Committee.

It is the responsibility of each individual clinician utilising the guidelines to exercise their clinical judgement. UHBW accepts no responsibility for such judgement, nor the interpretation of the guidelines or inaccuracies therein.

The guidelines are not intended for use by individual patients who should seek advice from a professional.

Whilst there is a process by which UHBW will make reasonable endeavours to include a current version of the guideline on the website, it is the responsibility of the clinician to ensure this.

UHBW does not permit the use of these guidelines under the name of any other Trust and the content is not to be copied without express permission. We do not endorse the content of any links which may be within the guidelines.

UHBW reserves the right to withdraw access to all or any part of the guidelines without notice.
