Support for childhood illness (HANDi app )

A new app has been launched to provide advice and support to parents, carers and healthcare professionals looking after children with the most common childhood illnesses.

The HANDi app has been developed by paediatric consultants and will give you access to home care plans, as well as GP and hospital clinical guidelines, to help you provide the best support for your child and give you confidence in caring for them when they are unwell. The app describes care plans and guidance for the most common childhood health concerns, including:

  • abdominal pain
  • chestiness
  • diarrhoea and vomiting
  • high temperature
  • problems during the newborn period.

Download the free HANDi app for Android phones at Google Play (opens in a new window) or for iPhone or iPad you can download it from the app store using the search term 'HANDi app'.
