Managed Clinical Network

Welcome to the East Anglia Children’s Palliative Care Managed Clinical Network (MCN) webpages.

Here you can find out more about what we do and how you can join. Read the latest news on the work we are undertaking and find details of upcoming events. The site also provides a news service and knowledge base for professionals involved in children’s palliative care.

These webpages are updated with new information and event details – so please stay in touch and check frequently.

One of the drivers for the development of robust clinical networks is to deliver the right advice and support to the mix of professionals who are involved with children and young with a life threatening or a life limiting condition who receive services in a range of settings.

Membership for professionals

Membership of the wider Network is restricted to professionals only.  As a professional in Paediatric Care you can join the Network by getting in touch via any of the means outlined below.

As a member of the network you will receive regular briefing notes and automatic invitation to the Eastern Region Paediatric Palliative Care Education Programme.

  • EACH, Church Lane, Milton, Cambridge CB24 6AB.
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
