Vision statement

Our core value is to benefit children in the region by providing excellent training opportunities for future paediatricians, many of whom will stay within the region. We take pride in our high quality training that ensures our CCT holders have the knowledge and people skills required to work as effective Paediatricians.

We aim to work collaboratively with all training units to create a holistic training environment that allows for optimal learning and takes the needs of adult learners into account.

The paediatric trainee is at the heart of our efforts and we aim to provide an excellent learning environment, taking personal requirements into account, as this results in happier and better trained doctors.

Welcome to a HEYH School of Paediatics newsletter. Please contact the team if you have news to share or want to contribute. 

We hope everyone had a good Christmas, especially the many of us who were working over the festive period. As we look forward to the New Year, The School of Paediatrics wants to focus on improving trainee feedback across the region. 

The Newsletter will be updated on a monthly basis and aims to highlight news and events from across the region and country.    


The School of Paediatrics wants to improve the feed back given to trainees. Following the GMC survey, feedback was the area scored highest by paediatric trainees in HEYH.

We want to improve this and are enocuraging trainers across the region to focus on this practice over the next year.

Trainees in Leeds/Hull have investigated this locally and suggestions for change were:

1. Trainees would like more feedback after ward rounds or clinics

2. Feedback made trainees feel valued and gave them a guide to know how they are doing

3. Regular time for feedback- consider drop in sessions.
