Extra information provided by this PSP
Original uncertainty examples If surgery is going to be performed on children especially those with rare or relatively rare and complex conditions like CP and SB should that surgery only be determined and performed by a limited number of consultants who are high trained in the condition and the surgical and other options for management of those conditions. In this way the children and families get the best opinions and treatment and outcomes can be monitored, and the centres of excellence can coordinate easily to improve the national standards of care for children and families. This happens in other highly complex conditions requiring surgery eg heart surgery.
