Thank you for visiting the ACE service pages! The service was established by senior children’s doctors (consultant paediatricians) and experienced children’s nurses at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, alongside family doctors (GPs) from throughout Bradford. If you’re new to the service, please take a look at the short film to the right to find out more!
ACE stands for ‘Ambulatory Care Experience’. ‘Ambulatory’ means that care will be provided out of hospital and in your own home.
The service is run by specialist children’s nurses who are experts in caring for unwell children. Each ACE nurse works under the guidance of a consultant paediatrician based at Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI). This means that your child will be looked after by a very experienced hospital team but in your own home. Your GP will be kept informed of how your child is doing.
The ACE service, winner of the 2018 HSJ Award in the Improvement in Emergency and Urgent Care category, aims to provide the best possible care for your child while they are at home. For further information please take a look at our information leaflet for parents and carers or watch our film which tells Tahira’s story. Used the service already?
