Thank you for visiting the ACE 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.
ACE stands for ‘Ambulatory Care Experience’, and ‘ambulatory’ means that care will be provided outside 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 about 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.
