Welcome to this podcasts listing from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. We'll be sharing podcasts from a wide range of topics across paediatrics and child health. 

Nov 11, 2020

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.
