Work we do

As well as our essential work in education and career support for paediatricians, our staff and members work on a range of programmes to improve child health - from quality improvement to workforce studies, from research in the UK to global child health programmes. Find out more and get involved.

Children and young people are the heart of everything we do. Through our RCPCH &Us programme, thousands of children, young people and family members engage in our events and activities, developing resources and providing insight.

We play a key role to help ensure there is an appropriately trained paediatric medical workforce to deliver safe and sustainable services for children in the UK - now and in the future. We're currently collecting crucial data in our workforce census 2022.
This is a fundamentally important process for us as a College. Together with our members, we're looking at the working lives of paediatricians, health outcomes for children and young people, College volunteering and awards.

Climate change action is now embedded as a priority in our 2021-24 College strategy and we have identified six ambitions to guide our activity.

We hope that through our work across the next three years we can put our strength of voice to good use.
