Treatment and Care for Children

The Society continues to work collaboratively with the four nationally commissioned Highly Specialised Services (HSS) whom have an interest in paediatric Osteogenesis Imperfecta in England. We also work with other regional centres throughout the UK and Ireland. For the full list click here

The NHS England commissioned services are for children with Complex, Severe or Atypical Childhood Osteogenesis Imperfecta. These centres provide multi-disciplinary care where you may see a variety of specialists during your visit. They are also able to offer specialist advice and information to your local hospital team.

This page lists some useful resources and talks in relation to general care in child health.
