Citizenship - The doctor will see you now

23rd January 2009 at 00:00

A poster informing young people of their rights when visiting a doctor has been launched.

Designed by a group of young people aged 13 to 15, the poster forms part of a project commissioned by the General Medical Council and run by the National Children's Bureau, in partnership with Children in Scotland.

The young people from Scotland and the rest of the UK produced the final design with the help of a professional designer after reviewing key messages from the GMC's 0-18 years: guidance for all doctors. This sets out doctors' responsibilities to act always in the best interests of children and young people, to listen to them and to involve them in decisions which affect them.
