ACE stands for ‘Ambulatory Care Experience’. The word ‘ambulatory’ means that care will be provided out of hospital and in your own home.
The ACE Service has been set up by Bradford family doctors (GPs) and specialist children’s doctors (paediatricians) and nurses based at Bradford Royal Infirmary.
The service is run by specialist children’s nurses who are experts in caring for unwell children. The ACE nurse will be working under the guidance of a senior children’s doctor (consultant paediatrician) who will be based at Bradford Royal Infirmary.
This means that your child will be looked after by the hospital team but in your own home. Your family doctor (GP) will be kept informed of how well your child is doing.
The ACE Service aims to provide the best possible care for your child while they are at home.
