The YPHSIG has been invited by the RCPCH Clinical Standards Group to consult on the below clinical guidelines, technology appraisals, diagnostic assessments, public health guidances and quality standards over the next few months. You may wish to lead the YPHSIG consultation on behalf of our group or simply contribute to the discussion. There will be forthcoming consultations on:

This work requires reading and commenting on draft guidance and is a chance to influence clinical guidance to reflect the health needs of young people. It counts towards Continuing Professional Development activity. If you would like to lead the YPHSIG on any of the above consultations please let me know by Thursday 16 December 2011. Forthcoming consultations are listed on the College website at - see ‘Forthcoming consultations’.

Many thanks to members for your continued involvement in these consultations. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
