Child health app

The child health app is available for all smartphones, providing fast access to medical advice and reassurance for parents of children under five.

Parents and carers can 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, which has been created by healthcare professionals across the region as part of the North East Urgent and Emergency Care Network, gives easy to understand guidance on childhood illnesses and is also available as a 115-page booklet.

The booklet and app contain advice on everything from how to deal with upset tummies to treating bumps and bruises.

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