Hello to children's services

We understand that learning that your child has a long-term condition can cause anxiety and be overwhelming.

We have developed the 'Hello to children's services' programme to help support parents and carers who have a child diagnosed with a long-term condition.

Who is it for?

  • You, if your child has been diagnosed with a long-term condition.

What is it?

  • A programme to help you gain knowledge and skills to manage your child’s condition.

Why?

  • So you have the knowledge and confidence to manage your child’s condition and are supported through the process.

How?

Your child’s team will help you:

  • manage your child’s condition
  • learn about their treatment
  • gain the confidence to ask questions and be involved in decisions about their care
  • know when to get help and who to contact in an emergency
  • stay informed about any support networks available.

Talk to your team about how you feel and any questions or concerns you might have. You can also contact ReadySteadyGo@uhs.nhs.uk
