St George's Hospital Charity say thank you to the St George's Children's Panel!

28th June 2021

The St George’s Children’s Panel was created a few years ago and is currently thriving with a wonderful host of children, from ages 10 to 18, who have experienced care or live locally to St George’s.

Recently, the St George’s Children’s Panel was tasked with supporting the Paediatric Recruitment Drive. Alongside the usual tests and interviews, candidates were also interviewed by the children and young people. 

This year, there were 24 candidates taking part in the interviews and each child scored them on various aspects such as kindness, communication skills etc. It is great for the team to take the children’s feedback into consideration when they hear comments such as "I'd love this person to look after me if I was poorly".

According to candidates, they had not come across another hospital with a Children’s Interview Panel and loved the idea as part of their recruitment process.

Tania Haughton, Matron of Paediatric Inpatients, said it is a "fun and exciting way to recruit our nurses.”

We think so too and St George's Hospital Charity is delighted to have supported this event with rewarding each young person with a £10 voucher for their contribution to the day- it is so well deserved!

Thank you to the incredible panel!
