We are delighted to launch the new College strategy 2021-24

Camilla explains that our strategy is built on four key strands, which will help guide our work and inform our priorities to ensure we are supporting our members and improving health outcomes for children and young people.

I am delighted to be sharing the College’s 2021-24 strategy with you today. 

We all understand the importance of improving health outcomes for the youngest members of society, especially given the challenges of the last 18 months. Our members stand at the front of this work, supporting children, young people and families when they need it most. 

The role of the College is to support paediatricians and the wider child health workforce with the knowledge, research, evidence and expertise you need to succeed. This means providing you with the best training and education and supporting the paediatric community throughout your career. It means listening, supporting and championing your work and sharing innovations and digital technologies that can help support the workforce and drive improvements to child health. It means shaping policy, driving forwards with equality and diversity improvements, developing our climate change plans and advocating for child health.  

This is what our Strategy 2021-24 is all about. It will guide our work, starting now and until August 2024. We will continue to reflect on our successes and where we need to invest more time and attention, alongside ensuring our goals continue to reflect the priorities of our members.  

Production of our strategy has been guided by nine months of development and discussion with members, staff, children and young people. Over the coming months, we will run webinars for members to learn more about the strands of work and how they can get involved. 

For now, I encourage you to read the strategy, watch our short film or view our ‘At a glance’ summary.
