We also provide a comprehensive training programme for all staff and work in partnership with Universities in England to undertake Paediatric Intensive Care training. We are always looking at innovative training opportunities.

A member of our senior nursing team is an Honorary Lecturer with UCE and has facilitated a satellite programme provided in Cardiff. This has enhanced links with, Birmingham City University. reduced travel and provided additional local tutorial support for our staff.

If you have an interest in paediatric intensive care and are not child trained do not be put off as we do employ registered nurses with Intensive Care experience that wish to retrain to change to the speciality of paediatrics. We advise against newly qualified staff applying to PIC as we recommend six months experience once qualified in a general paediatric area first.
