The state of play of paediatric anaesthesia / surgical services. The results will be powerful in helping us to promote positive change in the specialty. We will present the results at the next Link-network meeting - book your place now!
The APAGBI aims to maintain links with all paediatric anaesthetists, particularly those working in non-specialist hospitals. This allows us to disseminate relevant information more effectively, consult more widely on aspects of clinical practice and service models for children’s surgery, and obtain feedback from those providing these services.
The Link Representative will be the liaison between the APA and the personnel delivering anaesthesia for children. They will take responsibility for two-way communication with the APA while actively participating in their regional network.
The Link Rep will demonstrate a passion for learning, for personal, professional and team development and will connect with other specialities and professions involved in the delivery of care for children.
Since 2005 a database of members has been maintained, and is currently managed by the AAGBI Specialist Societies Coordinator. We would encourage any anaesthetist with a passion for children’s services to register as a Link Rep, particularly Lead Paediatric Anaesthetists. You can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org We would be grateful if those already registered, help us to keep the database up-to-date by notifying us of changes in Rep in their institution. The database was updated in 2017 to include trainees who are part of PATRN the trainee network.
The APAGBI Link-Network Lead will act as coordinator and work collaboratively with APA council members to promote the maintenance of professional standards, be a catalyst for change and facilitate quality improvement initiatives
