Healthier Together

The resources on the Healthier Together have been developed in partnership between parents and NHS healthcare professionals. You’ll find clear information on common childhood illnesses, including advice on what ‘red-flag’ signs to look out for, where to seek help if required, what you should do to keep your child comfortable and how long your child’s symptoms are likely to last.
