Advice for common childhood conditions

The app has been developed by paediatric consultants and provides access to home care place, as well as GP and hospital clinical guidelines, for the most common childhood health care conditions:


  • Diarrhoea and vomiting
  • 'Chesty baby' illnesses, such as bronchiolitis, asthma and croup
  • 'Chesty child' illnesses, such as wheezing and asthma
  • High temperature
  • Abdoninal pain
  • Common newborn problems

Giving parents more confidence in dealing with minor conditions

The app contains information about when and how to ask for help, along with what to expect when your child is being assessed.


Parents generally don't want to take their children to A&E unless it's absolutely necessary - but often they end up there because they are not sure what else to do.


This app give parents more confidence in dealing with minor conditions at home. 


Parents answer a series of questions about the symptoms their child is experiencing. The app then advises on the best course of action, whether that's to treat at home, to make a GP appointment, or to head to A&E.
