About the Respiratory Surge in Children programme from e-LfH

The Respiratory Surge in Children Programme aims to support the cross-skilling of the NHS workforce to manage:

- potential future spikes in paediatric demand as a result of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and other respiratory illnesses in children
