Healthier Together

Think Healthier together for help and advice with childhood illnesses 

How often have you wondered what to do when your child or a child in your care is poorly? Not knowing whether to go to A&E, phone NHS 111 or your GP, or whether you can manage your child's symptoms at home because it is a common illness that will get better on its own. 

Think Healthier Together for clear information and the next best steps for illnesses in children. The site is image-led and colour-coded to help you navigate to the correct information and find the service to help for your child. 

Healthier Together can provide help and advice for many common conditions including: 

  • Coughs and colds 
  • Fever / high temperature
