Sefton Young Advisors Takeover!

EPEG Takeover MeetingOur Sefton Young Advisors have recently had a great opportunity to chair and host our local CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Group) EPEG meeting (Engagement and Patient Experience Group) for apart of the ongoing Takeover Challenge that’s happening Sefton!

This involved the team talking about our Emotional Health & Wellbeing consultations and also giving them a quick taster of our Youth Engagement workshops that we’ve held at Edge Hill University. We had also had great conversations with all the service professionals about the healthcare that young people are receiving in Sefton and got some great ideas from them for possible consultations in the future!

The CCGs communications team also did a great job of putting these quick interviews together to give others an insight on what the day was about and what it involved!
