Adolescents and young adults currently engage poorly with health and social care services, exacerbating health inequalities across Greater Manchester. How can we improve services to adolescents and young adults at scale to improve the health and wealth of young people in Greater Manchester?
Policy makers and influencers will be encouraged to contribute ideas about how to embed services for adolescents and young adults across Greater Manchester and how to make that attractive to commissioners.
Issues that make accessing healthcare difficult for adolescents and young adults and possible solutions will be discussed.
This is an opportunity to understand the impact of the current problems facing adolescent and young adults in Greater Manchester
Provide input and contribute to possible solutions so that there is greater clarity on preferred models that could be developed.
It's also an opportunity to join the wider Working Group for this topic and get involved with this project longer term.
