WHEN: Wednesday 4th February, 5.30pm
We are delighted to host Dr Hilary Cass – President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health – who will be speaking on ‘Bridging the gap between primary and secondary care health services for children.’
The event will start at 5.30pm and will be held in the George Pickering Education Centre (GPEC) at the John Radcliffe Hospital. There will be ample refreshments and opportunities to ask questions at the end of the talk.
Dr Cass qualified from the Royal Free Hospital, London in 1982. She first trained as a general paediatrician, before undertaking higher specialist training in the field of disability.
Over a 15-year period she was Consultant in Paediatric Disability at Great Ormond Street Hospital, where she also held a number of senior management roles, including Director of Postgraduate Medical Education and Deputy Medical Director.
She has held several regional and national roles in medical education and policy development, including Regional Adviser for the RCPCH, Registrar of the RCPCH, and Head of School of Paediatrics for London.
Dr Cass is strongly committed to bridging the gap between primary and secondary care health services for children, and addressing the fragmentation and poor communication that makes life so much harder for families caring for a child with a disability.
We look forward to seeing you there!
