The British Society for Haematology (BSH) Paediatric Special Interest Group’s (SIG) primary role is to represent paediatric haematology and address its training, workforce and educational needs. The SIG is comprised of BSH members and non-members who are involved in the care and study of childhood blood disorders.
It also has an integrated subgroup: the Paediatric Haematology Trainee Network (PHTN).
The Paediatric SIG holds the Paediatric Haematology Symposium annually in winter. The group and its members also provide education at the BSH Annual Scientific Meeting and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) annual meeting. The SIG meets outside of the educational events twice a year.
The SIG, formerly the Paediatric Committee, was established to bring together all those interested in childhood blood disorders. The SIG is open to BSH members, non-members, clinicians, paediatricians, trainees, nurses, biomedical scientists or any other healthcare professional interested in paediatric haematology.
Chair: Dr Philip Connor
Vice Chair: Dr Jayashree Motwani
