Paediatrics 2040

We are working with paediatricians to develop a credible vision for the future of paediatrics. This ambitious programme of work will help to deliver our vision of a healthier future for children and young people across the UK.

Update from the team - June 2020

Over the last few months, we've seen unprecedented change in paediatric services as a result of COVID-19. It has transformed ways of working - to the extent that lots of the theoretical futures we were exploring have already been experienced.

We're encouraged by the pace and scale of change, and the project team are working to capture and share the learning to support planning for the future.

We look forward to sharing our short report with you later this month.
