The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in large-scale changes to the National Health Service (NHS) systems in the UK to accommodate a predicted surge in acutely unwell adults presenting to emergency and critical care departments. This article describes a rapid, multicentre surveillance project with three
main aims: (1) to identify the number
of children with delayed presentations
to hospital in large emergency
departments; (2) to find out what
proportion of these delays was due
to hesitance of parents in attending
versus the proportion that was due
to advice from primary care staff or
NHS 111 referrals; and (3) to find out
whether these delays might have
resulted in harm to children (using
admission to hospital as a proxy).
