A new NHS health advice app is now available to help parents and guardians to help their young children quickly.

City of Wolverhampton Council and The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust’s Health Visiting Team have collaborated to commission and launch the app that Is full of tips, advice and signposting to give young families support, from pregnancy to getting a child ready for school.

City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, said:

“Our NHS Health Visiting Team does a fantastic job providing advice and support to thousands of new parents and families of young children across the city. The Health Child Wolves app helps complement this service and is a great additional resource to families.”

“The Health Child Wolves app has been developed by the Trust’s Health Visiting Team in partnership with families. We hope that parents and families will find it useful, and it helps to provide them with extra confidence and reassurance to bring up a happy and healthy child.”

The wide range of information on the app includes common illnesses, first aid, keeping a baby safe, breastfeeding, dental health, and looking after emotional health and wellbeing. There also trackers to record a baby’s sleep.
