Who are we?

The Paediatrics and Neonatology Stream is a network of SHPA members who work in any inpatient, outpatient, ambulatory or primary care settings where infants and children receive pharmacy services, including paediatric intensive care, neonatal intensive care and special care nurseries. Some of us work in dedicated children's hospitals, some in maternity hospitals and some in general hospitals that treat paediatric patients.

We may be generalist paediatric or neonatology pharmacists, or we may specialise in oncology, cardiology, emergency medicine, infectious diseases, medication safety or many other paediatric subspecialties.
