The NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group has a Young Persons Forum which is currently being re-branded. This is a group of young people from local upper schools who share a commitment for health and a passion for making a positive difference to the healthcare services delivered to their peers and we welcome new recruits between the ages of 13 and 25.
At regular meetings, members inform plans for engagement and how they can contribute to them. We welcome new members from the local area to join us to help in making those healthcare decisions directly related to young people.
Each term, the group with support from the CCG put together a newsletter, which includes help and advice for young people living locally and info about what the group is doing locally to help improve local health services. Check out the latest newsletter HERE.
