In our summer 2023 edition, we prepare for the new training currriculum Progress+! Members discuss collaborative working in youth-friendly services and a paediatrician shares lessons learnt as both parent and doctor on the neonatal unit.
The influence of poverty on children’s health and wellbeing is undeniable. With insight from paediatricians, children and young people, we outline our position on health inequalities to Government, and provide paediatricians with a toolkit to make a difference. It’s time to #ShiftTheDial
Our position - the evidence and policy recommendations for UK
Health inequalities are the systematic differences in health outcomes between different groups of babies, children and young people. They are driven by factors such as ethnicity, income, housing and being looked after by local authorities.
Reducing child health inequalities is a priority for health services in all four nations. We provide a template letter, to which you can add your unique perspective, to help shape better care and outcomes locally.
In this podcast, we hear from two teams doing innovative work to better understand the impact of poverty on children and young people’s health, and design NHS services that provide targeted support for families.
