The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health sets and maintains standards for the education and training of all doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK. We advocate on child health issues at home and internationally. Additionally, through a variety of activities, the College influences the quality of medical practice for children in hospital and in the community.

Who we are

The RCPCH has more than 22,000 members and fellows and employs around 200 staff, most of whom work in our London office in Holborn. We have smaller offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The RCPCH wants to represent all the communities we serve. Appointment will be made solely on merit. However, the College is particularly keen to receive applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and/or candidates with a disability who are currently under-represented at this level of the organisation.

The College operates a flexible and modern working policy, whereby our colleagues work in the office for a minimum of 40% of the week over a 4 week cycle and the remainder from home.

Our Strategy

Our strategy describes how RCPCH continues our work to improve health outcomes for children and young people. Building on our vision to lead the way in children's health, this outlines our four strategic aims, how we do it and what we focus on.

Strategic aim 1

To harness knowledge, data and intelligence to improve the quality of care for children and young people.

Strategic aim 2

To equip members with the skills and knowledge they need through training and assessment.

Strategic aim 3

To speak with confidence and authority on the health issues that matter to children and young people, and on policies that speak to our values and our mission.

Strategic aim 4

To develop our communities, supporting members throughout their careers and attracting new recruits, ensuring the College is financially sustainable and well-resourced.
