The HANDI app offers simple and straightforward advice, for the following conditions in children:
- diarrhoea and vomiting
- high temperature
- 'chesty baby' illnesses, such as bronchiolitis, asthma and croup
- 'chesty child' illnesses such as wheezing and asthma
- abdominal pain
- common newborn problems.
The app takes you through a series of questions about the symptoms your child is experiencing and 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.
Each of the illnesses has a home care plan to help you provide the best support for your child, and give you confidence in caring for them when they are unwell.
