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.

It’s important to look after yourself, particularly children, the elderly and for people with long-term health conditions such as diabetes or heart diseases. There are lots of things you can do to keep you and your family well.
GP online services are available at Marsden Road Health Centre to help people better manage their health. These services enable patients to book appointments and request repeat prescriptions via their computer, smartphone or tablet at a time that suits them, anywhere, anytime – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Patients who require repeat prescriptions can request these from the comfort of their own home, rather than venturing out to drop their request off at the practice. You will also be able to review which medication you should be taking, the dosage and when it should be taken – helping to improve your understanding of your medication.
