Delivering Youth Friendly Primary Care

Dick Churchill

GP, Associate Professor of Primary Care, & Acting Chair RCGP Adolescent Task Group

“I would that there were no age between ten and three and twenty, or that youth would sleep out the rest; for there is nothing in the between but getting wenches with child, wronging the ancientry, stealing, and fighting.”

William Shakespeare,

The Winters Tale act iii, scene iii

“….the problems of youth are many-sided and compelling. To their solution medicine has a contribution to make: this is surely, above all, in the sphere of the family doctor”.

Anonymous Editorial

British Medical Journal 1954

Walk the Talk 19/3/2008

We ‘have been slow to give adolescence the same concentrated care that has gone into the study of the baby and the young child’. ‘If as a society we are to understand our adolescents instead of being estranged from them, we have to catch up fast on our ignorance of what life means to adolescents today, and what the world looks like through their eyes’

James Hemming
