Child's play for Ombudsman Emily and Catherine
OMBUDSMAN for children Emily Logan shares a smile with Catherine McDonnell (2) from Dalkey on Universal Children's Day.
Ms Logan and the HSE published separate but complementary documents about children's rights in healthcare settings.
The HSE is developing a National Healthcare Charter for Children to ensure that young people receive the best quality care in hospital and other healthcare settings.
"Today is about partnership and coming together to focus on children's rights and in particular the best interests of children in healthcare settings," said Ms Logan
"In publishing this report, it is my hope that the research will also be a useful foundation resource for all those with responsibilities and roles to play in fostering a culture of respect for children's rights in healthcare in Ireland."
