UCLH Play Team finalists at BMJ Awards!
Well done to the UCLH play specialists and paediatric team who were finalists in the BMJ Awards last night for their MRI awake list project “It Pays to Play”
In a room full of medical colleagues it was a great opportunity to profile the role of the Health Play Specialist and spread the word about the many benefits of using play instead of a GA! ??

HPSET Online Survey
Message from Tina Clegg..
“ At the Spring NAHPS Conference held in Dundee delegates raised their concerns regarding the lack of training opportunities in Scotland. I promised that I would organise a survey to gather data to support the writing of a business case with the University of West London. The survey is now open HPSET.org.uk. Please can I ask that those who would and could attend a course in Scotland complete the survey. I will feedback the survey results at the NAHPS Spring Conference in Edinburgh and on the HPSET website. Thank you Tina Clegg, Chair HPSET.”
