Healthier Together is a new online platform dedicated to supporting families through the stages of maternity and child health development, in partnership with local health professionals in the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board area.
The first of its kind in Wales, the free ABBHealthierTogether service is a self-care resource for both health professionals and the public in the ABUHB area. As well as providing valuable information from pregnancy care, child development and mental health advice for young people, it’s also anticipated to become the go-to place for parents and young people to find support, resources and guidance while understanding and navigating key areas of childhood health.
Developed with local clinicians at the heart of it, the service encompasses all aspects of the health board’s family services and ensures that everyone is accessing the same, consistent information whether that be a worried parent or a supportive GP. With the aim of improving patient safety, the tool will also help to ease worry over health care concerns and offer a new way to access the necessary care available.
It also contains useful resources for early years staff, including safeguarding, immunisation guidance, recommendations for attending nursery or school for children who are unwell and provides children’s health information for parents.
