Quality Standards for Long-term Ventilation for Children and Young People Version 4
The Quality Standards aim to improve the quality of services for children and young people needing
long-term ventilation. The standards help to answer the question: “For each service, how will I know that
National guidance and evidence of best practice have been implemented?” The Quality Standards are
consistent with NHS England’s Service Specification E07/S/c ‘Paediatric Long-Term Ventilation’ and are
suitable for self-assessment, monitoring by commissioners and use in peer review visits. They describe
what services should be aiming to provide and all services should be working towards meeting all
applicable Quality Standards within the next two years.
The standards were reviewed by the Midlands Children’s Long-Term Ventilation Network (MCLTVN) in 2018 in recognition of the increasing allied health professional representation at the MCLTVN. Version 4 therefore recognises and reflects the developing role, involvement and
importance of allied health professionals in the care of children and young people needing long-term
The Quality Standards are based on and support implementation of national strategies and guidance,
including NICE guidance and Quality Standards
