NHS London Tertiary Paediatrics Project
My first event with the RCPCH YAP was on Monday 23rd April 2012, which is nearly 2 years ago now. I wasn't aware when I first got invited to take part in this event that I would join the YAP at the RCPCH. In an interview which I gave after this event I said the following:
"I was so excited about attending the event, it was great to meet other people and hear their experiences as I don’t get to do it very often. It’s was positive to hear everything that’s going to be done to improve paediatric services and I look forward to seeing how our ideas."

Some of our ideas included:
• Visiting patients, parents and carers locally to support their engagement in the project
• Creating on line webinars and forums to enable patient and carer input & communications about the project development
• Listening to their input and providing feedback.
