We have brought together clinical guidelines for paediatrics from across London. We hope you find them useful and appreciate the work that has gone into them. We hope this project will help reduce the duplication of effort that currently occurs in guideline development and helps us to ensure we deliver high quality evidence based care for our patients.

This site is intended as a resource to allow paediatricians to access and share guidelines across institutions for guideline development and research purposes. All clinicians are responsible for their use of these resources and should follow the procedures and protocols of their own institution.

SMART objectives

We aim to build up a database of clinical guidelines that are categorized and searchable which will be useful to 

Progress made: What have you learned from doing this?

 The importance of getting engagement from seniors and juniors across institutions, and that there is a huge interest in this as a resource.

What’s your take home message?

 Please get involved, help share this idea across trusts and contribute your own guidelines to our project.

Key people involved in the project

Organisation: London NTS

The idea came about after a difficult neonatal resuscitation situation in my first paediatric ST1 job, where I became somewhat overwhelmed and couldn’t think clearly. I wanted to avoid this happening in the future, both for me and for others, and so NeoMate was born.


Specific: to create a smartphone app to help with common calculations, concise reference information and easy-to-follow checklists for common emergency situations.

Measurable: to create an accurate and safe app, launch it onto the app stores, and for people to enjoy using it.

Attainable: free time was the main constraint on this project!

Relevant: the NeoMate project was very relevant to everything in my paediatric job.

Time bound: I wanted this to be ready as soon as possible, for me to use in my job – i.e. within a few months. 

Progress since introducing the idea

The app is released on iPhone and Android, and has been downloaded over 60,000 times.

What we have learned

I’ve learned that even simple apps take a huge amount of time to create, and to maintain. Apps that involve crucial calculations need to be 100% correct – the amount of effort required to ensure this is much greater than you would ever initially imagine.

Take home message

Despite the hurdles, the project has been a huge amount of fun and very satifying. If nothing else, NeoMate has certainly made me safer at work in a stressful situation.
