The story so far

Show sub-pages


At the beginning of 2014 we started to talk with people about community health services for children and young people.

We went out and about and asked:

  • What works well?
  • What needs to get better? And... 
  • What should happen in the future to these services?

We listened to everything that everyone told us and turned what was said into the draft plan...

What do you think?

We asked you to look at the draft plan and tell us what you thought about it.

  • Have we got it right?
  • Do we need to make some changes to it?

What are ‘community health services’?

When you see a health professional e.g. a health visitor or speech and language therapist in your home, at your school or college, or somewhere other than the GP surgery (or a hospital),  that’s a community health service. This consultation is looking specifically at community health services for children and young people.
