Foundation doctor annual prizes

Each year we give foundation doctors (FY1 and FY2) a chance to win one-day free access to RCPCH Conference - a fantastic opportunity to gain more knowledge about paediatrics and network with professionals from across the UK. Foundation doctors can apply through their foundation school or LETB/deanery.
