Young people's notes from Health workshop - day 1

Where are we falling short for children and young people?:

GP. Housing etc: Need to phone in the morning to get an appointment. No flexibility – not able to get an appointment for the following day.
Tricky to access GP without parent/guardian being there

What needs to be changed or put in place?:

Better communication between all young people
Healthy food shop for young people (affordable)
Too many off-licenses in poor neighborhoods
Creating health services for young people locally.

Key messages for tomorrow
We need better communication – media etc.
More control commercially – food shops etc.
Flexibility of GP services
Creating health services for young people locally
