Dr Bryony Hopkinshaw is a Paediatric Registrar working in London, and today we’re talking about the impacts of NHS charging regulations on undocumented children living in the UK.
In this episode, we discuss the impacts of charging on patients, doctors, and the public, the false dichotomy of "children and adults", and safeguarding implications for children and young people. We also talk about the impact of the pandemic, practical advice for healthcare workers and members of the public, and potential policy changes.
