The Paediatric Awards For Trainee Achievements (PAFTAs) was developed in the Wessex region to recognise amazing work of paediatric trainees, consultants and supervisors. The PAFTAs have been widely praised for their role in supporting trainee morale and have spread far beyond Wessex. The RCPCH held their first national PAFTAs at the Annual Conference in 2017, and this is likely to become a permanent fixture for years to come.
In 2017, were very excited to expand the PAFTAs to include 'Paediatric Nurse of the Year' and 'Special Person in Paediatrics' to acknowledge the essential role that nursing and allied health colleagues play in delivering the best care to children.
This year, the PAFTAs are taking place at the Dancing Man Brewery in Southampton, as part of the PIER Conference 2018 on the 15th October. Tickets for the PAFTAs are £10 and include a buffet meal. These tickets are available as an 'add-on' when buying a PIER Conference ticket. If you would like to come to the PAFTA Celebration without attending the Conference, or are attending the Conference but forgot to buy a PAFTA ticket, you can purchase a ticket below.
We will also be hosting the nomination forms for the 2018 PAFTAs on this page soon. Check back for more information and to nominate your colleagues,
