PAEDIATRICS

Paediatrics

Paediatrics is the section of Medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children and adolescents. It is currently listed on the Shortage Occupation List meaning that Paediatricians are in extremely high demand in the NHS. The main demands from NHS Hospitals are in General Paediatrics and Neonatology, however there are many sub-specialities operated throughout the UK like Paediatric Emergency, Paediatric Cardiology and Paediatric Haematology for example. We work with all types of Hospital across this specialism from outpatient centres through to Level three Tertiary University Teaching Hospitals, all over the UK.

What is required to be a Paediatrician in the UK?

The GMC accepts various qualifications as recognition of specialist training in Paediatrics for Middle Grade opportunities, the main qualifications being MRCPCH, MRCPCI, FCPS (Pakistan), MD (Sri Lanka) and FWACP. Through a Junior option, you can also take PLAB, however you will still need around 18 months of experience in a purely Paediatric position (rotations do not count) to be consider by the NHS.

What our experts have to say?

“My advice to you is to take no shortcuts in the process when looking to relocate to the UK and find a suitable position in Paediatrics. There is no better foundation then gaining experience. If you can, I would suggest that you complete your residency and then gain a further two or three years’ experience in your own Healthcare system and undertake the relevant qualification that will allow you to register with the GMC and look for a Middle Grade or Senior Registrar opportunity. By doing this, you allow yourself to gain experience across a wide diversity of cases and a deeper knowledge of Paediatrics, which is what the NHS Paediatric departments will want to see, this will give you the best chance of securing the best position for you.”
