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.

Paediatric Transition to Leadership course

Transition to Leadership is a free course to help prepare paediatric SHOs who are transitioning to a Registrar position in 2020.
This well-established course ran annually for several years face-to-face, and due to Covid-19, has been adapted to run ONLINE for this year.
The course is organised by the London School of Paediatrics - this year they are offering the opportunity to all transitioning SHOs across the UK, to join our virtual course.
