All members are welcome to join Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 26 March at 12:00 (noon) in Birmingham or via a livestream. It will receive reports on College activities over the last year and hand over the Presidency.
Whether you can help the College champion child protection, run invited reviews or represent the voice of trainees, we have some wonderful volunteering opportunities. Plus two new International Officer roles!
Our new report presents findings from services responsible for conducting child protection medical assessments. It shows positive national results in many areas, but a need to better protect our safeguarding workforce.
Dr Emily Parker is one of our new Clinical Fellows with the Clean Air Fund Partnership, and in her first blog, she describes how doctors are taking a more critical look at the impact of air pollution on children's health.
We hope you can join us on 25-27 March for our major event. With the input of more than 35 specialty groups, inspiring speakers and practical workshops, you can update your knowledge on what matters to you.
Our guidance and best practice examples can help you collaborate with children, young people and their families to create a healthcare service that meets their needs - at local and strategic levels.
As a paediatric health professional, you'll know how important it is to engage children and young people (CYP) in your healthcare settings. It's one of the key training principles in our Progress+ curriculum. But how do you get started, develop your skills or share learning?
You can scroll down to see our varied resources. We also invite you to get involved by signing up for our regular, informative eBulletin or finding out about the committee that drives our work.
Engagement means we seek out children and young people's thoughts, feelings, ideas, concerns and expectations around health and healthcare, and work together to create a service that meets their needs. Here's how.
Our 'voice bank' is a rich source of children and young people's ideas, concerns and expectations. It can guide strategic planning and organisational change. You can use ours and create your own locally.
