We regret to inform you that due to COVID-19 and the need to protect both healthcare professionals and our child and adult patients, we have taken the decision to cancel PREP 1, 1.2, 2 and 3 for March and April. This is a difficult decision to take and we understand that it will cause some anxiety amongst trainees, especially as many educational opportunities are currently being cancelled. We are very proud of the PREP programme and we are disappointed to have to cancel sessions, but we feel that in the current climate, this is the right thing to do. Please be assured that this will not affect your ARCP progression in any way.
PREP will resume as soon as possible.
All the best,
Emma, Sarah and Kate
PREP 1.2 (ST2 and ST3 Trainees)
The PREP 1.2 programme expands upon PREP 1.1 and aims to prepare trainees for taking the next step to becoming registrars. The day is planned and organised by the Trainee Leads, Gen, Hannah, Celia & Annelies, under the watchful eye of Dr Hawkins and Dr Grainger-Allen, Consultant leads. Teaching is held on the second Tuesday of every month.
Each month has a paediatric sub-speciality theme and runs on a two year rolling programme. The days are a mixture of interactive lectures, round table discussions and structured simulation sessions. Speakers range from sub-speciality tertiary consultants to general paediatricians, registrars and allied health and social care professionals.
Attendance The attendance list is sent to the Deanery and apologies are to be sent in advance to email@example.com if for any reason you cannot attend. Where possible, please do so at least a week in advance and via email (e.g. rota clashes). If short notice (emergency/sickness) please let a colleague know (so we don't worry about you!) and follow up with an email as above for formal record.
Please note that attendance is monitored and is reviewed at ARCP. If you have any questions or concerns about your attendance, please contact Dr Grainger-Allen or Dr Hawkinsas soon as possible.
