Many children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), will also have medical needs. Different clinical commissioning bodies are responsible for securing the health care provision for these children and young people. They may have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHC plan) or an Early Help plan.
The local authority has a specific duty to ensure that joint commissioning includes health care provision for any child or young person with SEND in education or training.
