Best wishes for safe working and good health to all of our members and their loved ones during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our thoughts are with you and everyone working and supporting us.

Massive thanks for the unbelievable effort from our NHS and emergency services despite worrying shortages and increased risks, but we must also recognise those in utilities, transport, food supply and related areas; we could not survive without such unheralded infrastructure.

Academic Paediatrics is essential to the health of our children and our future; let’s learn from these unprecedented experiences and do it better as we go forward.

Be careful out there.

Paul Winyard
President, Academic Paediatrics Association
