In collaboration with the NHS, the NHS Youth Forum have released reports and resources which encompass their drive to address the issues young people face in healthcare. These reports and resources focus on digital mental health services, healthcare inequalities, widening access and the experiences of young people throughout the UK. Additionally, each report suggests recommendations that the NHS could make and, as a result, has led to encouraging conversations with Amanda Pritchard (Chief Executive of NHS England). Check out the conversation with the NHS Youth Forum and Amanda Pritchard.
The NHS England Youth Forum is made up of 25 young people from across the UK. The Youth Forum is delivered by the British Youth Council and works in partnership with NHS England to challenge and feed in ideas and solutions regarding healthcare and services. The British Youth Council established the NHS England Youth Forum in 2014 believing professionals in healthcare could and should do things differently to engage young people in the NHS and to amplify the voice of 15 million under 20-year-olds across England.
