With the help of the RCPCH, BACD has formed a database of the contact details of neurodisability leads for each child development team in the UK. BACD intends the database to be a resource which allows clinicians to undertake research, audit and activities which help us bring about improvements in the interests of children with neurodisability, their families and clinicians. The database is an important resource and will be used sparingly.
All child development centres were last contacted in 2010 to ensure a full update of CDT leads - the database is also updated as and when we are advised of changes to the CDT lead.
Applications to contact neurodisability leads/teams through the BACD are welcomed. All contacts will be made through BACD, and names and addresses from the database will not be given to applicants. Applications might involve contacting all teams in a region, a random selection of teams, or all teams in the UK.
Applications will be reviewed by a sub-committee of the BACD executive committee. Informal advice regarding applications pre-submission is available on request.
Feedback about whether your application has been successful will usually be given within one month of submission. Please note that clinicians are very busy, and have limited time available to complete requests which are very time consuming. Therefore requests which will take up more than 30 minutes of a clinicians time are unlikely to be successful.
If successful, an application fee of £250 is required and will need to be paid in full before information is sent out to CDT leads.
