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.

Volunteers needed - Please see below message from RCPCH

The RCPCH Global Health trainee reps are keen to organise an "RSM style" educational day in the north of England or Scotland; but they need your help! They are looking for trainee volunteers in the region to create a steering committee to help organise the day. This would count as organising a national teaching day, and becoming an RCPCH global health regional champion - good CV points!

Medico-Legal Training Programme

A new e-learning programme from Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) aims to support health and care professionals with court-related experiences.

The Medico-legal Training programme provides resources for doctors and other health and care professionals who may be asked to write a statement or report or give evidence in a coroners’ or other court for the first time. It aims to offer support for what can be, for many, a daunting experience. It includes brief video lectures and PowerPoint slides from the lectures as well as sample statements and references.
