Healthier Together

"Improving the health of babies, children and young people throughout Hertfordshire and West Essex" 

Healthier Together - a community initiative

The Healthier Together programme relies upon patients and healthcare professionals working together to improve how local healthcare is delivered. The website provides advice for parents, young people and pregnant women, and clinical resources to support healthcare professionals – which means that your child is likely to receive consistently high-quality care, irrespective of which healthcare professional they see.

If you are looking for advice on symptoms, have queries around vaccinations, worries around mental health and wellbeing, or the social and financial aspects of daily living, the Healther Together webpage could help you.
