YiPpEe - Young People's Executive

Our Young People's Executive (known as YiPpEe for short), is a group of young people aged 11-18 years who work and meet with hospital staff to help us understand what young people in hospital want and need.


Having an operation in Oxford Children's Hospital with YiPpEe

For young patients, to tell them what they can expect, and allay their fears

Future plans

  • giving feedback on new initiatives
  • trialling virtual reality headsets
  • discussions around same-sex accommodation and LGBTQ+ issues
  • updating our 'Promises' pictures
  • designing a new logo.

A member of YiPpEe sits on the OUH Council of Governors, and many YiPpEe members go on to further study and some have pursued careers in healthcare.
