Introducing the new online NHS resource for parents and carers. Designed with local families, 0-19 Healthy Child Programme and other NHS children’s services to be a go-to resource for children and young people’s health advice. Using a collaborative approach based on need and evidence the platform focuses on:
Easy access to health information – with a family focused design, information is quick to access and easy to use on a phone, tablet or laptop.

There are also dedicated service pages where professionals can find the most up to date contact details, referral forms and guidance.
