Specialised services designation visits to Paediatric Intensive Care and Retrieval Services at Birmingham Children's Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and University Hospital of North Staffordshire NHS Trust took place in March 2010. The findings of these visits fed into the Specialised Commissioning Team (West Midlands) Designation Process. These visits used the draft Paediatric Intensive Care Society revised standards. The finalised Paediatric Intensive Care Society Standard for the Care of Critically Ill Children are available in the Document Library section of the site.
