Children and Young People - Engagement on the use of and awareness of health and social care services in Bromley - Outcomes report 2018

Date: 25 July 2018

In September 2016, Bromley CCG commissioned an independent review of safeguarding children and children looked-after services across the health economy. The aim of the ‘mock’ CQC Safeguarding Children Review was to look critically at whether there were gaps or areas where improvements should be made, and to strengthen the current health safeguarding children arrangements.

One of the recommendations included ensuring engagement with children, parents and young people in planning and raising awareness of health and care services in Bromley. The CCG’s Children and Young People (CYP) Communications and Engagement Plan, developed in January 2017, outlines that one of the ways this will be achieved is through undertaking an annual survey with CYP to gather feedback on their use of current services and understanding of what is available to them.

The Designated Doctor for Safeguarding Children for Bromley CCG together with the Communications and Engagement team developed and tested a survey aimed at CYP aged 11 years and over. Signposting to support was embedded within the survey.

A detailed dissemination plan was developed in order to encourage and empower CYP across the borough to be able to complete it. Organisations were given the choice of having hard copies of the survey dropped off and picked up; electronic copies; or providing links to the survey via their websites or social media.
