Did you know that you have rights? You do!
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child has 42 rights called articles.
These are all the things that you have the right to have.
The UK has signed up to this convention so these rights apply to all children and young people in the UK all of the time. Some of the rights which are particularly relevant in hospital include:
You have the right to say what you think and have your views taken into account when adults make decisions about you
You have the right to play and rest
You have the right to the best health care possible
You have the right to privacy
You can find out more about your rights on Unicef’s website.
