"As paediatricians in our everyday jobs, we know what needs to be done to improve healthcare." Dr Yincent Tse, our Lead for Patient Safety and Quality Improvement, explains how he uses his voice to help others.
This election has been an important opportunity to advocate for children, young people, and the paediatricians and child health workers who care for them. Our policy calls included a sustainable workforce, supporting healthier environments and lifestyles and commitments to delivering high quality NHS services.
Before the election, we made the case for the next UK government to invest in our workforce, put child health at the heart of policy making and implement health improvement programmes in every community.
We use expert-agreed standards to determine how many consultant paediatricians the UK needs to deliver safe and quality care. We recently estimated that we need an additional 856 whole time equivalent consultants.
We are politically neutral and therefore not partial to any political party. But we did pay close attention to the policy commitments related to the NHS and child health that were made in each manifesto.
