Children, young people and their families need high quality information in order to support decisions they make about looking after themselves and staying healthy. When children are unwell, they and their families require information tailored to their needs in order to make choices about their health and healthcare, the medicines they take and the various services that the NHS offers.
The Children's Health Information Matters Project report
provides a full picture of the information needs and preferences of
children and young people, under 18 years with specific healthcare
needs and conditions, and their families. Recommendations are made
to improve children's access to health information in the NHS.
