The Group meets to share ideas and news, plan new projects about issues related to the health of adolescents, who we define as young people up to the age of 25.

Membership is mainly GPs but also students and trainees, specialists, HCPs, members of the public and although mainly UK based also has world- wide members. We’re now over 300 strong and hope you will join us to improve thinking around overdiagnosis.
