'Collaborating for Paediatric Critical Care'
Invitation - updated 14th July
On behalf of the local organising committee here in Leicester, I’m extremely excited to invite you to #PCCS22 – being held at the home of Leicester's pride; the rugby premiership league winners - Leicester Tigers Mattioli Woods Welford Road stadium from 14th – 16th September.
The pandemic has truly uplifted the opportunities for shared learning, with the revolution of online conferences, webinars and such-like. But what we’ve really been craving for, is an enticing and enriching face-to-face meeting; a reunion of our critical care specialty in one place, truly collaborating to move paediatric critical care forwards.
The focus of the scientific programme features inclusivity and diversity from start to finish. We have secured esteemed speakers from inter-professional backgrounds world-wide, covering a wide variety of interesting topics, delivered in an interactive and immersive style.
“The PicPod” is collaborating with us to release exclusive podcast content with 4 of our speakers and will also be chairing a 100% slide-free session. Stay tuned to social media #PCCS22@PICSociety for teasers!
Our PIC & Mix innovation allows delegates the opportunity to pre-book and participate in clinical skill workshops, communication skills simulation, competitive challenges and mix it up with pre-booked “naps” and bespoke well-being treatments. Bookings available via the PICChub app.
Our pre-conference workshops feature UK’s first and exclusive mobile ECMO simulation in collaboration with The Children’s Air Ambulance Service as well as an inter-professional focus on stabilisation of a critically ill child, renal replacement and the extremely popular CACTUS course. This year, we are also featuring a music therapy workshop, again, providing for all health professionals allied to critical care – with the Songbirds Music workshop.
The true beauty of the face-to-face conference lies in the opportunities to network in real life. We haven’t forgotten to schedule in time to chat and network whilst enjoying an exclusive view of a rugby pitch over canapes and a drink; and an opportunity to party, Bollywood-style at the grand Winstanley House.
Appreciating that for some, the feasibility of attending in-person may not be possible, there will be a single live stream, and recordings will be available at a later date. For the first time, in PCCS ASM history, delegates will have the opportunity to make a positive climate contribution when making bookings too.
The abstracts are in… so register now, don’t delay – Early Bird prices are only available until 1st August 2022. Don’t forget to download and refresh the “PCCS Hub” app to access the “PCCS Conference 2022” community and PIC & Mix pre-booking portal.
I can’t wait to see you all there. its been too long!

Invitation to Companies
We are back live and look forward to company news and training.
PCCS would like to invite companies to host workshops and sessions as well exhibit - again! We know a Conference with an Exhibition is very ‘time’ competitive for delegates to meet with companies and we plan features in the Exhibition area to encourage not only a higher profile for companies with delegates, but also enable companies to gain access and ‘contacts’ leading to future sales interaction.
We intend to offer more exposure through the on demand streaming of sessions with the E Company Zone.
Here at Leicester Children’s Hospital host team, our view is that we wish to provide quality education best delivered live and on-site to our members, learning from each other’s experiences, great networking opportunity as well as quality profile and returns for your company's investment; be it in kind or in funding.
Please review this Prospectus and contact the team to plan your involvement.
