N2 - Aims: To report findings of a national survey of care closer to home services for children and young people and a typology based on these findings.Background: Providing care closer to home for children is a policy and practice aspiration internationally. While the main model of such services is children’s community nursing, other models have also developed. Past research has proposed a relatively static typology of services, determined by where they are based, whether they are generic or specialist and whether they provide short- or longer-term input. As services develop, however, this typology needs further elaboration. Methods: A two-stage national survey of all primary care and hospital trusts in England, in mid-2008.Results: In all, 67% of trusts responded to the screening questionnaire and 75% of relevant services to the main stage questionnaire.
