What the heck does this mean?

From the web site of Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust:

Broadly based on an integrated new-born and adolescent axis which features a family centred multidisciplinary approach to care supported by a dedicated paediatric team aligned solely to the children. The core service consultant and training grade support include:

Paediatric Emergency Department with its own staff of children’s nurses and paediatric SHOs supported by an assigned paediatric medical registrar and consultant. Direct contact with either the registrar or consultant is welcomed for any member of the primary healthcare team.

OK, what the hell is an 'integrated new-born and adolescent axis'? And how could a 'dedicated paediatric team' not be 'aligned solely on the children'?

And, when did a hospital become a Foundation Trust?

Your Chelsea/etc. link doesn't link where you think it does - it goes straight to this blog instead.
