Campaign: To encourage doctors to empathise with young patients

When I was younger I had a negative experience at a medical appointment.


I had to have a personal examination and was left feeling alone and frightened when I wasn’t given enough information about what was happening to me.


I want healthcare professionals to show more empathy towards young patients, recognising that a visit to hospital can be daunting.


With Fixers, I want to encourage doctors and nurses to think about the way they come across to vulnerable patients – making sure they feel reassured and understand their treatment.

I was given the opportunity to show my Fixers film at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health annual conference in Birmingham. Around 1000 people attended.
