Community Health

Country of origin: UK

The Children and Young People’s Health Outcomes Forum held its Annual Summit recently. The Forum is an independent expert advisory group of professionals and representatives from across the children’s sector. The Forum works together to provide expertise, constructive challenge and evidence based advice and
recommendations on improving children and young people’s health outcomes.

Throughout the Summit, Forum members heard from key system leaders across the health and care system about the work that their organisations are doing to improve children and young people’s health and what progress has been in implementing the recommendations in the Forum’s report, published in July 2012. A copy of this report and the Government’s system wide response can be found through the following links:

The Forum report is available online.
