7.7 Making health facilities more youth friendly

Last update: 25 January 2021

‘Walk the Talk’ is a national initiative, led by NHS Health Scotland, that provides support for youth-friendly practice, guided by the World Health Organization (WHO) framework. Resources from the initiative are available on the NHS Health Scotland website.

Government advice on age-appropriate care and facilities for young people is set in the context of hospital services, but is also of wider application.
