Under the Children and Families Act 2014 (CFA 2014) a local authority has a duty to carry out an Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessment and issue an EHC plan in certain circumstances—see Practice Note: Special educational needs in England under the Children and Families Act 2014. Once special educational provision has been specified in an EHC plan, the local authority has a legal duty to provide it. The previous framework which relates to statements of special educational needs under the Education Act 1996 contained a similar requirement, meaning a local authority is bound to provide the provision that is set in in the EHC plan or statement.
The Code of Practice for special educational needs and disability from 0 to 25 years sets out that a local authority must provide a local offer which must include information about provision made by health professionals for children and young people with SEN or disabilities. This should include (among other things):
palliative and respite care and other provision for children with complex health needs
support for young people when moving between healthcare services for children to healthcare services
