With a partnership dating back over a quarter of a century, the Allens team are very much embedded with the Neurology Department at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick. For 25 years, they have been a steadfast supporter of the team and have impacted children born today, to as far back as the early 1980’s.
SCHF recently recognised this generational commitment to children’s health by hosting an afternoon tea with SCHF CEO, Nicola Stokes, representatives from Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network Executive Team and senior members of the Neurology Department.
For a quarter of a century, Allens has funded the Paediatric Neurology Fellowship at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick. Paediatric neurologists work with children with brain diseases and injuries, treating, diagnosing, and rehabilitating them so they can go on to live their most fulfilling lives. Thanks to Allens, twenty doctors have been given the opportunity to hone their skills within the Neurology Department, dedicating themselves to paediatric neurology.
The impact that this has over the course of each Fellow’s career is remarkable and impacts children with brain diseases and injuries not only in New South Wales, but across Australia and New Zealand. The lifecycle of a Fellowship also coincides with an unprecedented time of knowledge expansion, scientific discovery, and therapeutic breakthroughs in neurological conditions.
Not only do Allens fund the Neurology Fellowship, but pledge their commitment through workplace giving, attending major events, and getting involved in our major appeals.
Our afternoon tea gave SCHF an opportunity to express their gratitude to face-to-face, after two years of connecting virtually due to the pandemic. With catering generously provided by The Fresh Collective, our CEO Nicola Stoke presented Allens representatives with framed artworks created by patients. Current and past department heads were able to update guests on developments within the neurology team and explain in more detail the wonderful impact the Fellowship Program has had on children and their families
All in with Allens Linklaters for kids’ health
