  • Website Getting it right for children and young people: overcoming cultural barriers in the NHS so as to meet their needs
    The review concentrates on understanding the role of culture in the NHS. It focuses on those areas where there are cultural barriers to change and improvement. It examines the NHS’s position in a wider system of care and support, so as to understand and improve the NHS’s provision of services to children and young people. The review has uncovered many cultural barriers standing in the way of improving services for children and young people. These were created, and operate, at a number of levels, from Whitehall, through regional and local organisations, to contacts between individual professionals, and with children, young people and those looking after them. The author makes several recommendations for improvement.
