Aishah's journey into advocating for the voices of children and young people began with her own experience of accessing healthcare services as a young person. This led her to joining University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust's Youth Forum, where she was involved in shaping how healthcare should be delivered from a young persons' perspective.
Her passion for improving healthcare services acted as driver to her to becoming a Trust young Governor, where she sits on the Council of Governors and ensures youth voice is involved in every decision.
Aishah is a member of the National NHS Youth Forum and is currently leading a Health Inequalities project, exploring ways to minimise the impact of social determinants on healthcare. Aishah has also used her lived experience of accessing healthcare services to contribute, as a lay member, on the NICE guideline on Babies, Children and Young People's Experiences of Healthcare.
She is currently a Patient Public Voice Partner for the asthma workstream and has recently been appointed as a Youth Board Member for the Children and Young People's Transformation board at NHSE. She is currently in her second year studying Pharmacology at the University of Bristol.
