    What Our Delegates Say!

    What a fantastic update. One of the best CPD days I have attended in 30 years as a consultant! 
    General Paediatrics in a Day – You can always teach an old dog new tricks. Well done team – most enjoyable. 

    Prof Blair

    95% of delegates said they would be highly likely to recommend us to one of their colleagues. 

    I am a paediatric consultant and I attended the Royal London General Paediatric Update Study day on the 19th of February. It was the most useful study day I have attended so far. The course was very well organised and the format of video sessions followed by the live Q&A was excellent. All the speakers were very knowledgeable in their areas of expertise and gave not only evidence-based but very practical answers to all the questions asked.
    This course has enhanced and consolidated my knowledge and I look forward to attending further updates from the teamam writing to let you know that I have passed my MRCPCH clinical exam. I wanted to thank you and the faculty. It was very helpful for me as this was my second attempt and I realised how much difference the course made in my preparation.

    Dr Lynda Ehizode

    Well done for putting on a seamless virtual conference which I’m sure involved a lot of hard work behind the scenes. I’ve learnt a lot and credit to you and your colleagues at Barts Health for making the conference very accessible to primary care clinicians and tailored to our learning needs and perspective which a lot of other courses often fail to get right. 

    Dr Suki Francis

    I am writing to let you know that I have passed my MRCPCH clinical exam. I wanted to thank you and the faculty. It was very helpful for me as this was my second attempt and I realised how much difference the course made in my preparation.
    The best things were the full circuit mock exam that gave me the real feel of the exam, teaching us a structured approach so that we can see any patient we are asked to irrespective of a particular system and very helpful tips for the development station.

    Dr Neelakshi Ghosh, MD (Pediatrics), M.Sc.

    I was impressed by:

    • Consistent relevance to and acknowledgement of the GP clinical environment
    • Emphasis on red flags, which is a simple message to get across
    • Providing useful and reliable resources for further information eg NICE, Headsmart
    • Use of a case study in the difficult realm of safeguarding
    • Sharing of the delegate questions and answers

    Dr Jenny Barnes FRCGP

    This was excellent. Well done to the team for organising. It is a good way to be kept updated on the latest developments in the different specialities of general paediatrics.
