Under the provisions of the Children and Families Act 2012, which was designed to support children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) must provide a Designated Medical Officer or Designated Clinical Officer (DCO). In Newcastle we have both a DMO and DCO.
The DMO/DCO play a key part in implementing the SEND reforms and in supporting joined up working between health services, local authorities, parent participation forums, schools and colleges.
