We pride ourselves in the diversity of our products, reaching large demographics from around the globe. However, we also pride ourselves on the work we do here in the UK, notably, the work we do that aids change and progression for the lives of you and I. Behind all of our products there is a story, a reason, a history, and having an understanding of this is an extremely important element of the development of products, and recently a particular batch of pin badges for the NHS caught our eye, and made us think…
The NHS was born out of a long-held ideal that good healthcare should be available to all, regardless of social standing, wealth and age; and it is these principles remain at it’s core. Yet, like all companies, brands and establishments, the NHS is in constant progression, striving to attain faster, more efficient and a better quality of healthcare for all of its patients. Many of us would assume that these progressions take place in a London office, however, we were surprised to learn that it is the youths of our country that are influencing change in one of the worlds largest workforces, via the NHS Youth Forum.
Comprising of 20 Young People recruited from all over the country and linked in to a Facebook network of hundreds more young people, the NHS Youth Forum aims to provide a voice for young people. The Young People will work with NHS England, Public Health England and Department of Health to work in partnership to improve the services for young people. The young people of the NHS Youth Forum aim to understand the NHS and then identify key issues that they could assist the NHS with, reducing stigma relating to mental health, signposting to sexual health services and critically enhancing communication between young people and health care professionals. The Youth Forum is keen to address the ambiguity that exists regarding the rights and responsibilities of young people, and developing resources by young people, for young people, and the Dot2Dot Branding Team were proud to be involved in such an influential and worthy process.
