"This is a time to be kind to ourselves as well as others"

Many of you are working hard, and in new ways, and there is understandable anxiety about the pandemic's impact on training and the paediatric workforce in general. Our Chair of our Trainees Committee offers advice to members.


Our resources cover paediatric services, staffing and rotas, training and CPD, research and surveillance - plus children and young people's insights.

We recognise that redeployment of trainee paediatricians to adult services may be necessary through the pandemic's surges - we've produced principles to minimise disruption to paediatric training.
To help support service planning, we're collecting data from UK clinical leads through the pandemic. Our second phase, a winter alert system, began in December 2020.
We're inviting member nominations for a wide range of opportunities - including Officer of Clinical Standards & QI, Area Officer for South England, trainee reps on our CSACs and much more.
