Influence and contribute to new paediatric clinical guidelines and quality standards

Apply to our panel to get requests tailored to your clinical interests. We will invite you to contribute to our response to documents that set standards in paediatric practice. We will also notify you of opportunities to represent the College at guidance meetings.


Consultation is a crucial stage of guideline development. It's an opportunity for paediatricians to influence paediatric recommendations before they are published or updated and implemented.

Through consultation on draft guidelines and standards, relevant specialty groups and those with a special interest can comment at specific development stages and feed into the decision making process.

Other opportunities include attending scoping workshops or joining a guideline development group as a topic expert member or chair.
