Young people have their say on local health services

On 22 September, more than 200 students from schools across Ipswich and east Suffolk were involved in a health services debate with local health professionals.

The event was organised by the Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG staff and youth forum members, with GPs talking with the teenagers about what they looked for in healthcare services.

Dr Imran Qureshi said: “The CCG would like to thank all the young people and their schools who came along.

“The young people discussed a range of health related subjects and provided us with considered, honest feedback on areas such as mental health, minor injury and access to services – all of which will be used by both the CCG in planning future services and by the YEAH! Group (youth health forum) in championing matters for young people.”

The event also hosted stallholders from various local health organisations including Ipswich Hospital, the Ambulance service, sexual health service amongst others and included presentations from Livewell Suffolk and Public Health Suffolk. 

Initial feedback from the young people who took part has been extremely positive. Comments included:

“Very helpful made me understand what the NHS was about”
“The event was very interesting”
“Loved it and it was great to meet other young people”
“Helped me understand the importance of staying healthy”
“Very educational”
“Could this be done on an annual basis?”
“The GPs and CCG staff were very friendly and approachable”
“Helped me to understand the world around us socially”
