The RCPCH frequently publishes position statements that provide an informed and authoritative perspective on topical issues in the field of paediatrics.
Each position statement is rigorously and strategically developed with the objective of strengthening the College’s policy functions.
These statements are also a highly valued tool and resource for interested health professionals, politicians, policymakers and media professionals for advocacy, policy or communication purposes.
Please email the health policy team with any queries or comments on any of our statements.
