Parents and carers can now find NHS advice at their fingertips to help them look after your children’s health.

The app gives easy to understand guidance on childhood illnesses, recognising when your child is unwell, and advice on when and where to seek further treatment.

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

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