15th December, 2019 from 1-3pm
During the December meeting, YES members reviewed what had been accomplished throughout the year. Some of the highlights included: Royal London Hospital’s Adolescent Room Opening, the UNCRC Celebration and growing the forum by 10 members! YES also had its first successful video attendee during this month which knocked down the barriers of travel and distance for members.
Looking into the new year, YES has many exciting events planned. In October 2020, the forum will be celebrating 5 years and there will be a big party to celebrate! But before then, members have plans to increase recruitment across the Trust, participate in the Super Youth Fair of 2020, attend the Big Youth Forum Meet Up and participate in media videos to educate health professionals on tips when working with adolescents in hospital.
The Barts Health Youth Empowerment Squad is always looking for ways to expand their network. If you are interested in any of the above and/or having a hands-on approach to making a positive change for young people in hospital, please join our meetings!

Wishing you a happy holiday season and a wonderful new year!
