Self-review tool for young people’s health services

Quality Criteria for Young People-friendly Health Services (2011 edition) has been designed to help commissioners and providers of health services to improve NHS and non-NHS health services.

The quality criteria provide good practice guidance based on local practice and evidence of what will improve patient experience and health outcomes for young people. 

Use of the quality criteria also helps to encourage young people to share in decisions about their health and to increase effective use of NHS and public health services.

The link below points to a description of the tool, a guide to its use and the tool itself.
