Due to current pressures on the NHS we have been asked to share the Healthier Together resource with parents and guardians to get advice and guidance about their child’s health and well-being over the holidays.
What is Healthier Together?
The resources on the Healthier Together website have been developed in partnership between parents and healthcare professionals from across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. You’ll find clear information on common illnesses, including advice on what serious ‘red-flag’ signs to look out for, where to seek help if required, what you should do to keep comfortable and how long symptoms are likely to last.
Most importantly, the resources are used not only by parents but also by healthcare professionals. This means that you will receive consistently high quality care, irrespective of which healthcare provider you take them to see as their advice is likely to mirror that on the Healthier Together website. Reducing unnecessary variation between professionals improves the overall quality of care and reduces the anxiety that inconsistent advice can generate.
