The Royal College of Nursing has announced that industrial action will take place on Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February. We'll contact you if your care or your child's care is affected. Ambulance workers are planning strike action on Friday 10 February. Learn more.

A number of transport strikes are due to take place this February. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

Education and training

For healthcare professionals

We provide training for doctors and nurses south of the river Thames who want to develop their skills in caring for critically ill children. 

We host a range of study days and courses at Evelina London and other hospitals. Our consultants and retrieval nurse practitioners can also come to your hospital to deliver a training day tailored to the development needs of you and your team.
