Respiratory Illness, Strep A and Flu
The iHV received funding from the NHS VCSE Health and Wellbeing fund to collate and develop a range of resources to support health visitors to raise parental awareness of respiratory illness in children and babies under three years old. Additional funding was then made available from NHSE to develop additional resources about Strep A and flu.
The resources have been split into 2 webpages – one for practitioners, and one for families.
This webpage for practitioners includes includes a range of these materials and resources to support and inform health visitors in their work when supporting families to access evidence-based information about respiratory illnesses.
The second webpage hosts a range of resources for families in a range of accessible formats about when to worry and where to seek further support.
