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.

Trainee Rep Meeting Outcomes


East Trainee Message

I would like to inform you about an exciting upcoming regional audit opportunity, which is based on the RCPCH trainee charter (a charter which outlines what trainees expect from every training unit in the UK, across key domains). The project involves a questionnaire which is to be filled in by a College Tutor in cooperation with a trainee in each hospital in East Yorkshire . If you are interested in getting involved, I would like to ask you to please contact your College Tutor, as we would like to have the teams ready in each hospital before the questionnaires are sent out in January.

We expect that the questionnaire should not take more than a few hours to complete and your contribution to this deanery audit will be acknowledged. Also, please contact me if you have any issues regarding your training or questions about your next placements. We would particularly like to hear how things are going for ST1s and anyone who is working in the NHS for the first time.

Best wishes,

Diamantina Spilioti , ST3 Paediatrics LST representative for Paed East Yorkshire
