It can be extremely stressful when you or your child is unwell. We know that there is a huge amount of information available at your fingertips, but finding something that provides clear and accurate information is not always easy!

The resources on the Healthier Together website have been developed in partnership between parents and healthcare professionals from across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. You'll find clear information on common  illnesses, including advice on what serious 'red-flag' signs to look out for, where to seek help if required, what you should do to keep comfortable and how long symptoms are likely to last.

Most importantly, the resources are used not only by parents but also by healthcare professionals. This means that you will receive consistently high quality care, irrespective of which healthcare provider you take them to see as their advice is likely to mirror that on the Healthier Together website. Reducing unnecessary variation between professionals improves the overall quality of care and reduces the anxiety that inconsistent advice can generate.
