Child Health app
Parents and carers of under-fives can now find NHS advice at their fingertips to help you look after their children’s health.
The NHS Child Health 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.

Cancer is a major cause of early death in Northumberland. Many cancers are treatable if they are diagnosed early enough and we are encouraging local residents to learn the signs and symptoms to look out for and to go to their GP straight away if they have any of the symptoms.
