NHS Grampian is developing digital health and wellbeing resources for young people. The board was awarded an SBRI competition to develop digital interventions to support psychological services, particularly those experiencing functional gastro-intestinal disorders. As such, NHS Grampian would like young people to participate in the design of the app.

NHS Grampian is looking for children aged 12 – 18 years old to commit one hour a month to support on creating an app that works for them.

The project is expected to run for 6 – 8 months and participants will be supported throughout the project. This will be through provisions such as having a young adult facilitator to reduce power issues in some ways, ensuring informed consent, assent transparent information, and offering appropriate support when needed.
