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 this year, and this is likely to become a permanent fixture for years to come.
We were very excited to expand the PAFTAs this year 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.
All the PAFTA nominees and the wonderful comments that were made about them, will be published here in the next few days. Well done to everyone on making training in Wessex great!
