  • In view of the current and evolving COVID-19 situation, please keep an eye on our meetings page for future dates for Q&A sessions and new CONI co-ordinator training.
  • We annually refresh the log of requests for equipment, as funding is intermittently available. As you can appreciate, the demand is very high and so there is no guarantee that you will receive the quantity of monitors that you apply for.  Please use this form to request extra monitors/scales.
  • If you wish to update your contact details, please use this form.
  • It is important for us to record as accurately as possible the number of families who decline CONI, or who use CONI but do not wish for their details to be sent to the CONI Team.
