New Consultants Club

This is a new initiative to create a network for newly appointed Consultant Paediatric Surgeons. We all remember our first few years as Consultants as being a steep learning curve. We are all prepared to tackle clinical problems but how many of us were aware of the leadership, managerial and logistic challenges that accompany the job? This is a group to designed to provide mutual support and safe place to ask questions and expect honest answers.

The Club is open to anyone within the first 8 years of their consultant’s post (locum or substantive) to allow those just established to help guide those newly appointed. The inaugural meeting will be followed by a meal. Alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase on the night.

When you register for Congress, you can add the New Consultants Club as an option. Please do not forget to specify any food restrictions and contact honsec@baps.org.uk with any suggestions for topics for discussion. Please note a minimum of 10 attendees will be required for the event to go ahead.
