Local Healthier Together website launched to support parents and carers

Are you concerned about a baby or child’s health or wellbeing?

The new NHS ‘Healthier Together’ local website provides clear advice for anyone in Hertfordshire or west Essex who wants to turn to a reliable source of local information.

The site provides information put together by child health experts, helping you to recognise what might be wrong, when to seek help, how to keep your child comfortable and how long their symptoms may last.

For parents of ‘lockdown babies’ who may not have been exposed to common childhood illnesses before, or little ones starting to go out and about again, the Healthier Together site will be a useful source of support and reassurance.

All the advice available has been developed with healthcare professionals who want you to get the right advice, first time, helping to take some of the stress out of caring.
