CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE ENCOURAGED TO SHARE THEIR HEALTH EXPERIENCES
Children and young people are being encouraged to share their views and experiences of health services. ABMU Health Board is keen to find out how it’s doing after becoming the first health board in the UK to adopt a charter committing to the human rights of children.
Launched in 2017, it lists 10 promises to children and young people, respecting their rights when visiting a health professional – including the right to consent, to be safe and to have their say.
The health board is now working in partnership with Observatory on the Human Rights of Children and Neath Port Talbot Children’s Rights Unit to assess its progress.
ABMU have created a survey to enable children and young people to give their feedback on their experience of visiting health professionals.
