Covid-19 and PIMS-TS
PCCS has created this page to post information on Covid-19 disease and Paediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome Temporally associated with SARS-CoV2 infection (PIMS-TS)/Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MISC) relevant to the Paediatric Critical Care community.
PCCS is working with Simon Kenny (NHS England National Clinical Director for Children & Young People), RCPCH, NHS England, and the National Emergency Critical Care Committee to advise on national policy relevant to critically ill children and to co-ordinate planning with our key partners.
On this page of our website we will aim to post up to date and relevant guidance, but please remember to check the Public Health England webpages for up to date general guidance on SARS-CoV2 infection/Covid-19 disease.
