PHONE APP - A phone app is now also available for NHS guidance on childhood illnesses. The app was designed, in partnership with the North East, for parents and carers providing NHS advice to help look after their children’s health.
The NHS guide is for parents and carers of children aged 0-5 years – providing easy to understand guidance on childhood illnesses, recognising when their child is unwell, and advice on when and where to seek further treatment.
