Milestones - member magazine

Milestones is our quarterly member magazine. Each edition brings you all the latest College news, along with in-depth features and regular items on life in paediatrics in the UK and around the world.

Spring 2024

We spotlight how we are keeping infants, children and young people safe as they access health services. We also explore how healthcare professionals can tackle mental health crises and what a trauma-informed system looks like. Plus a welcome return of our regular “Starter for Ten” and “Day In The Life” features, and so much more!
