This past autumn, we invited all members to complete our annual survey for your views on how the College should tackle key issues such as workforce shortages, climate change and paediatric recruitment.
We recognise that redeployment of trainee paediatricians to adult services may again become necessary this winter. Our updated guidance describes the principles that should minimise disruption to training.
Our posters explain when and how to get medical help for your child, or your young baby - or for yourself as a young person. There's a set each for England, Scotland, Wales (in English and Welsh) and Northern Ireland.
We work with members and partners to produce podcasts on a wide range of topics across paediatrics and child health - available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts or wherever you listen to your podcasts.
Abstract submissions are open for this year's big event, which takes place in Liverpool from 28 to 30 June, and with the theme: Connect, Energise, Inspire – Celebrating Paediatrics and Child Health Together.
There are so many ways for members and others to support our work to improve child health. Apply for an official College post, become a media spokesperson, support our exams and courses or volunteer overseas.
In 2020 the College joined a number of other organisations in declaring a climate emergency. From then, we established the Climate Change Working Group. We're looking for a member to chair our workstream on research into the impact of climate change on children and young people.
We aim to influence public policy at all levels to improve health outcomes for all infants, children and young people in the UK. We work with members and officers to develop evidence based policy and healthcare standards with clear asks and actions to influence key decision makers.
Our Recruitment and Lifelong Careers Board is responsible for workstreams in careers promotion and support for paediatricians of all levels, national (ST), sub-specialty and consultant paediatric recruitment, and overseas recruitment such as the Medical Training Initiative Paediatrics, or MTI(p).
