Rachel Tricks

Paediatric Consultant

Rachel is a Paediatric EM Consultant at Sheffield Childrens Hospital, and the Clinical Lead for Major Trauma at Sheffield Childrens Hospital, working both within the trust and across the South Yorkshire Major Trauma Network to support my colleagues in providing the best care for our Paediatric patients who have suffered from Major Trauma. Prior to this she was the lead for Paediatric Major Trauma at Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham, so has a real recognition of the challenges and benefits faced by both stand alone Paediatric, and mixed MTCs.

Her aims are that all children receive timely, paediatric appropriate, focused assessment and management by the most appropriate clinicians and allied health care professionals, in particular promoting the use of focused and appropriate imaging. She also focuses on working with our local safeguarding and health visitor teams both in recognition of what has led to the trauma occurring and how we can reduce future trauma in our paediatric patients.
