Information and resources for SEND professionals
The professionals area is where we put information, links and resources for the people working in the services involved in our Local Offer.
An education, health and care (EHC) plan is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through special educational needs support.
EHC plans identify educational, health and social needs and set out the additional support to meet those needs.
Health professionals are under a statutory duty to support the EHCP process and this includes involvement in annual reviews.
Read the schools guide on involving professionals in EHCP Annual Reviews.
Read the guidance for educational settings on involving professionals in EHCP Annual Reviews.
The Education, Health and Care (EHC) Hub is an online case management system which manages requests for EHC plans and the annual reviews of these plans.
