What are the PAFTAs?

PAFTAs (Paediatric Awards for Training Achievements) exist to give everyone from senior management to nursing staff, doctors and support staff the opportunity to thank one another and identify those members of staff who are true heroes, and give something really special to the care of children across Devon and Cornwall.

Even with the pressures of meeting ever-increasing clinical demands and increasing parental expectations with less and less resources, we all know there are so many members of staff who are truly amazing and go the extra mile – and the PAFTAs give an opportunity to prove it!

Nominations came flooding in this year, and whilst not everyone can ‘win’ their category, we want to acknowledge every single person who got nominated – and remind every single person who got a nomination that you should be proud of the work you do!

The PAFTAs are a project supported by the RCPCH, run by local Paediatric Trainees. Last years winners and the PAFTA committee will be helping judge the nominations.

We are so lucky to have so many passionate and inspiring colleagues looking after children in Devon and Cornwall.

This website has been created to record each and every person who received a nomination and showcase just how many wonderful people we have working with us.

Well done to everyone who was nominated, and thank you to everyone who took the time to put a nomination in!
