NHS Youth Forum

We are seeking to engage with young people for recruitment to our exciting NHS 24 Youth Forum and would appreciate if you could share this with any young people that you work with, or groups that you may feel would benefit from this.  I have attached a flyer/poster that which you can share digitally or print off.
The aim of NHS 24 Youth Forum is to engage with a diverse range of young people from across Scotland between the age of 16 and 26, listen to their views and find out how they would like to get involved with NHS 24.  To have their voice heard and help the development of services that matter to them by improving awareness and access to NHS 24 services such as mental health.
There are various ways to get involved with the Youth Forum, from participating in regular Youth Forum and Public Partnership Forum meetings, engaging in user research sessions or usability testing and in-house service feedback, to involvement in campaigns and NHS events, all the way to board representation and strategy input.

  • To meet friendly, supportive and welcoming staff
  • Accessible venues or MS Teams meetings and advance notice of meeting dates
  • Encouragement to express your views on particular projects
  • Recognition and appreciation of your view
  • Support and guidance
  • To be treated as a colleague who actively contributes to NHS 24’s goals through volunteering
