The standards documents have been approved by the BSPED and reflect the Society's views on best practice for the average patient. Each patient must be considered as an individual in the context of their condition and other medication, and whilst every effort has been made to ensure the factual accuracy of the contents no liability can be accepted for any litigation, claims or complaints arising from the use of the standards, which is solely at the discretion of the reader.
The UK standards for Paediatric Endocrinology have been updated in 2019 by the BSPED and are endorsed by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. The standards apply to all children and young people aged 0-18 years with an endocrine condition. The aims of the standards are to reduce variability in care and to ensure that equitable services providing high quality, safe and effective care are available to all children and families across the UK. The standards are intended for healthcare professionals and for service commissioners to plan, deliver and quality assure paediatric endocrine services. Review date: January 2024
