Specialist nurse for seriously ill children appointed in East Sussex

A nurse has been appointed in East Sussex to help seriously ill children with long-term health issues leave hospital and return home to their families.

The WellChild nurse will help families manage ongoing medical needs and co-ordinate visits from health professionals and carers.

The three-year post is currently funded by the charity, which hopes the NHS will then take over.
