Healthier Together - Improving the quality of care for children and young people

It can be extremely stressful when your child is unwell. Not only is it hard to find reliable information, it is often difficult to know if your child needs to be seen by a healthcare professional, and if so, how urgently.

Healthier Together is a website resource developed by healthcare professionals from across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight area.

You'll find clear information on common childhood illnesses, including advice on what 'red-flag' signs to look out for, what you should do to keep your child comfortable, how long your child's symptoms are likely to last and where to seek help.

You're able to enter your mobile number on to a specific page and have the information sent to your smart phone.  There is also an app available, from your phone's App Store.
