New NHS Essex Child Health app

New NHS Essex Child Health app

The new NHS Essex Child Health app is live and ready to launch on Monday 16 November at the start of Self Care Week.

NHS Essex Child Health is an extension of the pre-existing Mid Essex Child Health app and has been designed to support parents, grandparents and carers across Essex find NHS advice at their fingertips to help look after their children’s health and recognise when they are unwell. 

The roll out of this app is key to the CCGs winter planning approach, to support our services and families with appropriate signposting, which in turn will hopefully support a reduction in demand on A&E.

As well as being available across mid and south Essex, we have partnered with North East Essex CCG on this project.  Therefore the app will be also be available to parents and carers across Colchester and Tendring.

We have an campaign stretching across the six CCG areas which includes radio, outdoor advertising, social media and partnering with online parenting websites and blogs. We have also created a webpage (link below) which includes a number of assets for stakeholders to download and share to spread the word.

Please help us spread the word of the new app by sharing via communications channels. We have also included information for you to share internally with your staff who may care for children under 11 years old.
