Leading the way in children’s health

We want more healthy children. So we make sure that our members get the knowledge and expertise they need, and we involve children, young people and families in all that we do.
Before the UK Government’s green paper on prevention was published in July, we set out our priorities and policy recommendations - from tackling inequalities to investing in the workforce.

Our major news and media response

Recognising excellence - we're now seeking members' nominations

Each year we bestow Honorary Fellowship upon a small number of people who have demonstrated a major contribution to child health - through research, education or clinical service and leadership.

And, the James Spence Medal (awarded to Professor Alan Emond, pictured below) recognises outstanding contributions to the advancement of knowledge and understanding in paediatrics and child health.
