The East West: Bridge the Gap for Children Group resulted after
two conferences in Hull, one focusing on critical care and one
focusing on sharing experiences about children’s health issues.
It was clear after the second conference that many of those who
attended the conference felt that we could not walk away from
the problems that faced children worldwide and that we wished to
keep up the links that had already developed or were developing
within the group. We have kept a practical focus working on
areas where we feel we can learn from each other and really make
a difference. We aim to learn globally but act locally.
We are not an exclusive group of tightly knit professionals. All
ages and all people are welcome to help us to bridge the gap.
