Health Pathway Information For Parents

The NHS has produced Health Pathways to support parents/carers.  The four Pathways are covering the conditions which result in the highest number of emergency admissions for children. These pathways take the form of guides for parents/carers enabling them to make informed decisions on how to manage their child’s condition and explain when to seek help.

Health Builders Pathways are simple and easy to follow.

A pathway is a guide containing advice and support for families and explains what you should do if your child is ill. These pathways provide step by step information on what children, young people and their families should experience when accessing health services.  It will help families to make choices about the care of their children.

As part of the project, the NHS have asked schools to promote, advertise and use the pathways.  Please find below a range of information.  Click on the links below to access the Health Pathway information.
