The London and South East (LaSE) Paediatrics Team look after Paediatric training in London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex and manage rotations, changes to placements, ARCPs, Trainee Support Meetings, OOPs, Matching, Revalidation, Intra Deanery Transfers, KSS STC meetings etc. They work very closely with internal teams managing IDTs, Recruitment and Less Than Full Time Training, Relocation Expenses and the Trainee Support Team as well as the RCPCH team, with regards to the ePortfolio and GRID. They also liaise with the Tier 2 team in The West Midland Deanery. The team members are Richard Geddes, Administrator, Adepero Akinlade, Officer and Liz Stanbury, Senior Officer. They can be contacted via the new PGMDE Support Portal: https://lasepgmdesupport.hee.nhs.uk/support/home, telephone number: 020 7866 3220.
The Support Portal has a list of useful FAQs, some of which are generic which applies across all specialties and those which are specific to Paediatrics. These can help you with queries concerning placements, ARCPs, OOPs, etc. Please also contact the team via this Portal if you wish to inform the team of any changes to your training or personal details, such as email address, corrections to your year of training, etc.
Please note that training days and events are advertised on Synapse: https://secure.synapse.nhs.uk/login. The Paediatrics Team used to look after room bookings and events but this is now managed by the Business Support Unit team who again can be contacted via the Portal.
