icon GP champions for youth health project: Commissioning effective primary care services for young people ( 931.7KB)

This briefing has arisen out of the experience of the GP Champions for Youth Health. The project is a partnership between the Association for Young People’s Health (AYPH), the Royal College of General Practitioners’ (RCGP) Adolescent Health Group and Youth Access. This briefing is aimed at policymakers, commissioners and funders, including independent funders with an interest in health and health-related services for young people up to 25 years. Its purpose is to support improvements in young people’s access to Primary Care services through improving collaboration and integrated working between GPs and voluntary youth sector organisations, particularly youth information, advice and counselling services.
