Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health: #VoiceMatters Ballot

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health are holding their first ever youth health ballot. They’re asking children and young people to pick their priority for improving health care for children and young people. Here’s more from the RCPCH:

 

What is the Voice Matters Ballot?

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health & Us are conducting our first ever Health Youth Ballot. Children and young people have told us things that need to change to improve their health and experiences at GPs, hospitals and health services.

Now we are giving children and young people a say in which one issue RCPCH & Us should concentrate on during 2020 through a ballot which list 6 issues.

What we need you to do?

We would like you to support us with this! We need children and young people to pick their top issue. Do you see children and young people? Do you run groups? Do you visit schools? Do you see children and young people in clinics/ hospitals or other health settings?

Where ever you see children and young people please tell them about the Voice Matters Ballot and encourage them to vote.
