I’ve valued working with a new team who clinicians would not normally meet: the RCPCH staff. It has been, in a way, a second family away from hospital clinical work which has been both a great experience and also educational... After all what are we doing this ‘job’ for? It is to provide high quality training for the next generations of paediatricians.
