Young People's Participation in Health Services

Written by Gift Consortium & MYAPTDate 01 Jul 2015

In partnership with Kath Evans, NHS England’s Head of Patient Experience has launched an eBook on young people’s participation in health services. This resource builds on the work done by CAMHS participation projects across the country and captures the 17 best examples of young people’s participation across all health services.

It is useful for health and social care professionals as it focuses on best practice in hospitals to community to minority groups and rare illnesses as well as examples outside of mental health services. Having consulted some of the most inspiring participation practitioners in the country, this report focuses on capturing what projects are doing and what is makes them successful, the challenges they’ve faced and how they’re overcoming them.
