Chapter Summary

This chapter examines recent health policy developments in England in relation to children's rights under Article 12 and 13 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). It draws on practice and research literature to explore evidence regarding: children's participation both within decisions about their own care and concerning the development of health services, their access to mechanisms that allow them a voice, the provision of and need for accessible information, and factors which prevent or facilitate children's participation. Checklists and guides cannot achieve the long-term inclusion of children and young people in decision-making alone, although they can help to support initiatives and help to launch activity. However, sustained change can only come through breaking down the barriers to children's participation.
