About the project 

Economic, political, and social changes mean that the role of paediatricians - and the shape of paediatrics - is very different today to what it was two decades ago. It is likely that two decades from now, in 2040, the delivery of paediatrics in the UK will be very different.

In Autumn 2018 we embarked on the journey of our Paediatrics 2040 project, looking to guide and inform the delivery of the College’s vision of a healthier future for children and young people. Since then, we have been busy collaborating with paediatricians, experts and young people across the UK to develop our credible vision for the future of paediatrics in the UK, concentrating on four areas – data and evidence, impact of innovation, models of care, and working lives. 

This event marks the launch of the work done across our four workstreams as we share our vision for the future of paediatrics in the UK and bring this exciting project to a close.
