Download the HANDi app for advice on childhood illnesses

The HANDi App aims to provide advice and support to parents and carers when your child is unwell.

It offers simple and straightforward advice on what to do and who to contact, including illness-specific home assessment guidelines for six common childhood illnesses:

  • Diarrhoea and vomiting 
  • High temperature
  • Chesty baby (Bronchiolitis)
  • Chesty child (Wheeze and Asthma)
  • Abdominal pain
  • Common newborn problems

Each of the six 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.

You can download the HANDi App for Android phones at Google Play.

If you have an iPhone or iPad you can download it from the iPhone app store or iTunes, using the search term 'HANDi App'.
