Last month we were delighted to welcome colleagues from across the NHS to Sheffield Children’s for a meeting of The Children’s Hospital Alliance.

The Children’s Hospital Alliance is a national network of specialist children’s NHS trusts working together to improve the quality, access and experience of hospital care for children and families.

The Children’s Hospital Alliance is co-chaired by Ruth Brown, Chief Executive at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and Matthew Shaw, Chief Executive at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. The group heard from a young person from Sheffield about her experience of healthcare, as well as Steve Turner, President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, who spoke about recent developments in paediatrics.

Ruth Brown, Chief Executive of Sheffield Children’s, said: “As a leader in children’s health, Sheffield Children’s proactively collaborates and works with colleagues across the country to improve and share best practice to create a healthier future for children and young people. Welcoming colleagues to Sheffield Children’s was a great example of this in practice. It’s fantastic to connect and share the work we’re doing and make real time improvements for children and young people.”

Children’s health conditions tend to be rarer and more complex, and specialist expertise in children’s healthcare is spread out far and wide across the country.  Our network allows specialists from different parts of the country to share experiences, to access peer-to-peer support and to learn from each other. By collaborating in this way, we can find new opportunities to advance research and discovery into childhood conditions.”
