February DSL Network 2019



NHS Nottingham City CCG have commissioned a video animation aimed at citizens to encourage them to attend medical appointments, and to take children and adults they care for to their appointments.  The animation is aimed at raising awareness about the consequences of missing appointments and to ensure that children and adults get the medical care that they need.

The animation is a follow-on from the Rethinking ‘Did Not Attend’ video which acted as a powerful reminder that children do not take themselves to appointments, and for practitioners to reflect on the impact of missed appointments on a child’s wellbeing.


  • Child L Learning Brief:  In 2017 the NCSCB completed a learning review on a case where significant concerns were raised about home conditions following the unexpected death of an infant. The death was in no way connected to the home conditions, however professionals responding to the death felt that the severity of the home conditions were such that they warranted review.
