A pilot audit using a discrete aspect of a new children’s and young people nursing audit tool was undertaken within a children’s outpatient department at a NHS Foundation Trust prior to a full audit of compliance to child health policy related to disability. The aspect of the audit tool pertinent to disability consists of eleven individual sections utilizing a 0-10 grading scale. The pilot results demonstrate that the Trust is making good efforts in the areas of multi-agency team work, decisionmaking, and assessment. However, there are some aspects of policy standards that need more careful consideration, such as communication, equipment, training, and delivery of information.
