Trainee Representatives

Paediatric Trainee Representatives

 

Trainee representation is a key element in the development and monitoring of the Paediatric Training Programme, and representatives play a valuable role in providing feedback and helping shape new initiatives.

In order to build continuity, the Paediatric School Trainee Representative will hold the role for the ST Levels they have applied to complete (i.e, ST1 - ST3).  They may of course, choose to step down from their role at any point if they wish.  If a trainee does give up their role, the Paediatric School will follow the application process to appoint a new trainee to the role. 

Please note that the posts are unpaid, honorary roles.  HEE YH is however, able to reimburse travel expenses for those Paediatric School Trainee Representatives who are required to travel to local and national meetings.  Details on how to claim reimbursement will be sent on appointment.

If you wish to contact your local Trainee Rep you will find their details below:

Helen Newsome

Hi, I'm Helen and I am an ST4 in South Yorkshire. I moved to Sheffield to pursue my interest in paediatric emergency medicine after a year as an expedition doctor and undertaking the Diplomhelen_newsome_91x121.jpga in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. I started my training in the East of England and undertook my F2 in Wellington, New Zealand. It can be daunting moving to new places and I am keen to support others moving into the region.

As a proudly 'out' gay person with dyslexia, I am passionate about diversity at work. My dyslexia has meant that I have found some of the MRCPCH exams harder than most and I am very happy to share my experiences and advise others where I can.

Bilal Manzoor

I am a level 3 trainee working in West Yorkshire. I have worked in district as well as teaching hospitals across Yorkshire and Humber region, during this journey I spoke to many of my fellow junior doctors and realised the need for a change in the way how we communicate with the deanery. I have put myself forward as a trainee representative to bring about this change.

I hope to be able to represent the views of my fellow trainees and help to improve the paediatric trainee experience in Yorkshire.

LTFT 

Brenda Van Beek 

Hi, I'm Brenda van Beek. I am an ST4 in South Yorkshire, where I started my paediatric training in 2013. Before that, I lived and worked in Leeds, and before that, I finished medical school in Amsterdam. I have been working LTFT since February 2018, which I see as experiencing the best of both worlds. Over time, and especially during my time as leadership fellow, I have developed a passion to make the work/training place a positive, happy environment (I know, a challenge in the current climate!) as I believe this will get the best out of all of us. I believe it's important to keep good communication between the front line and the powers higher up,  to make sure good practice is rewarded and the right issues are being addressed.

So please LTFT trainees, let me know if you come across anything that you would like me to highlight to the School of Paediatrics so I can represent your views!
