The membership of the group is self selective, if you are involved in this type of work and think you would benefit from hearing what is happening and occasionally meeting with others in paediatric care, then signup here.  There is no cost to joining the PCN, although this may change in the future.


The Network is convened by the two founding members, Rev Dr Paul Nash, Senior Chaplain, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Rev Jim Linthicum, Senior Chaplain, Great Ormond Street.
