Young Healthwatch at work

Young Healthwatch Northamptonshire is a group for young people aged 11-24 in Northamptonshire to have a say on health and social care issues. It allows young people in Northamptonshire to have a say and make their voices count. Our role is to influence better health and wellbeing and improve the quality of services. We report our findings to decision-makers. 

Key Points:

Young Healthwatch Northamptonshire held a relaunch event. This was an event that was designed by young people and would mark the start of a new way of working together for Young Healthwatch Northamptonshire.

Young Healthwatch visited Northampton General Hospital in October 2017. The visit was to look at the children's wards (Paddington and Disney) from the perspective of young people.

In February 2018 Young Healthwatch gained the Investing in Children Award

"Esther knows we see things from a different perspective to adults so she encourages us to present out ideas in our own words"

"We feel part of changing things, we have gained a lot as individuals"
