Medicines resources

We provide evidence-based information on prescribing and medicines safety to support healthcare professionals.

Medicines Committee

A collaborative standing committee with joint membership between RCPCH and Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacists Group (NPPG).

Meeting three times a year, it advises external agencies and supports a range of activities to ensure that the medications prescribed for children and young people are safe and effective and provided by appropriately trained healthcare professionals. 

Our website provides practical and reliable information to parents and carers about giving medicines to their child - with leaflets on many medicines plus explanatory videos..
