Child Health App provides advice at your fingertips

A new child health app available for all smartphones provides medical advice and reassurance at the fingertips of parents with children under 5.

Parents and carers can now find NHS advice on many common childhood illnesses, so you know when you need to seek further medical advice from a pharmacy, GP or hospital – or how you can care for your child at home until they recover.

The app gives easy to understand guidance on childhood illnesses.

The app, which has been created by healthcare professionals across the region as part of the North East Urgent and Emergency Care Network, is also available as a 115-page booklet.

The booklet and app contains everything from oral health, upset tummies and diarrhoea to advice on bumps and bruises.

Download the app now, available on Google Play and the App Store by searching for NHS child health or view the booklet online.
