Me first is an education and training resource, funded by Health Education England, that is designed to help healthcare professionals to develop their knowledge, skills and confidence in communicating with children and young people. As part of this commitment, the team are hosting a tweet chat, which I encourage you to participate in!

Titled ‘Why do we need to have children- and young person-centred conversations in healthcare’, the Me first tweet chat will take place on Wednesday 25 January 2017, from 8 pm until 9 pm (GMT). Simply open Twitter in your web browser or on your mobile/tablet app, and search for #CYPMeFirst. To view the tweets in chronological order, click ‘Latest’. This helps you to see what people are saying. It’s as simple as that!
