Paediatric Critical Care Nurses Sub-Group

If you are interested in becoming a link nurse please contact or via email

We meet 4 times a year. Currently these meetings are virtual via MS Teams.
Next meetings:
January 17th 2024
April 18th 2024
July 17th 2024 (in person meeting at The Engine Rooms, Birchwood Park)
October 17th 2024

Here at NWTS we have set up a NWTS Link Nurse Group and invited District General Hospitals to nominate 2-3 Nurses to represent them (eg 1 from Paediatric Ward and another from an A&E and/or Theatre area where children are stabilised).

The NWTS Link Nurses will also be responsible for updating, as necessary, the NWTS Educational Resource File.

Link nurses are able to access and book education days for other nurses in their DGHs. Information about this will be available in the meetings.

Link Nurse Conference

Once a year we run a conference for our link nurses. The programme for last year was as follows:
Proactive Paediatrics may Prevent Premature PICU
Introduction to Advanced Nurse Practice
Nursing in India
Human Factors & Excellence
Advanced Communication with Actors
