James Dearden

Peninsula trainee

“James has to be one of the most hardworking individuals I have ever worked with. He is an inspirational trainee, who strives to make training the best as he can for all trainees in the Peninsula deanery in his role as regional RCPCH rep. As if this wasn’t enough, his motivation has also led the development of the regional PAFTAs over the past couple of years. On top of all of that – he a fantastic doctor. He strives for education, team and self improvement, whilst providing superb care for the children and families he looks after.

James has been a fantastic leader across paediatrics in Derriford, revolutionising the doctors induction and providing teaching to all grades. James has been a fantastic advocate for APNPs within the trust and also within the deanery, trying to ensure there is an accessible portfolio. He has given us great guidance and is always there for us with any questions we may have. He will be sorely missed in Plymouth.”
