In 1928, six paediatricians attended the first meeting of the British Paediatric Association "to advance, for the benefit of the public, education in child health and paediatrics...". One year later, more joined our first Annual Scientifc Meeting in Windemere, Lake District (top photo).
For decades, the Association discussed how to form a college and, on 23 June 1996 we were granted Royal College status.
In 2022, dozens of our Senior Members, Senior Fellows and Honorary Fellows joined us for a special day out in Windemere, re-enacting that historic photo from almost one hundred years before (bottom photo).
Our subject guides on a range of child health topics are for researchers interested in child health and the history of paediatrics. They cover subjects as diverse as nutrition, HIV/AIDs, vaccination and children's health during the second world war.
