Review NHS care for 16 and 17 year olds

Petition Details

It varies whether 16 or 17 year olds are treated through paediatric services, or adult care. This can mean 16 and 17 year olds don't receive the care they need in a timely way. A review could identify issues with current practice and look at how to ensure this group receive the care they need.

Additional Information

Children aged 16 and 17 can end up caught between paediatric and adult care, and as a result not receive the care they need. Children are getting lost in the system and even dying. The Government must review care arrangements for this group, to prevent future tragedies.
