January 2020 Update from the Youth Empowerment Squad

19th January, 2020 from 1-3pm

In the January meeting, YES members established Board Member roles for the year of 2020 and welcomed two new members. Board Member roles include a Chair, Deputy Chair, Media Consultant and a Treasurer. All members will work alongside Trust staff supporting the forum.

At this meeting, YES also welcomed two guest speakers, Ana Waddington, Senior Nurse from A&E at Royal London and Michael Carver, Lead Nurse for Violence Reduction – Emergency Care and Trauma. Members collaborated with the speakers, established an adolescent friendly poster for A&E and expressed interests in conducting a 15 steps challenge in A&E in the near future.

Finally, members also discussed the Big Youth Forum Meet Up in Leeds where 4 of our members will be attending. It is at this event that our Trust Youth Forum will meet other Youth Forums across the country and be part of a larger networking community.  

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!
