Parents & Carers

CYPHP services currently suspended.

This is because the CYPHP Health Team is working to support the NHS to manage the coronavirus and essential services. If your child has been receiving services from the CYPHP Health Team, you would have received advice and information on how to continue to manage your child's condition.


Is your child feeling unwell, or looking poorly?

You can still get help from medical professionals during the current situation.

The image below is a helpful guide, where a child's symptoms are matched with the appropriate service. If your child is unwell, refer to the symptom guide to see which service may be best to support your child. You can view the document here (PDF 156 Kb).

What is the CYPHP service?

Prior to March 2020, if you and your family live in Lambeth and Southwark, we were here to help look after your child.

The Children & Young People's Health Partnership (CYPHP) services are for all children and young people. Our team of children’s professionals are dedicated to providing care for your child – their health problems and their wellbeing. Find out about CYPHP specialist care with your GP, at home, and at school.

And if your child has asthma, eczema, or constipation, previously your GP could refer your child to be seen by the CYPHP Health team. At this time, we have suspended our services, but will be in touch when services return to business as usual. 

Teenagers and Young People

If you've got asthma, constipation or eczema and it's bothering you, tell your GP! Depending on where your GP is we might be able to see you, or at least put you in contact with someone who can help.

If you live in Lambeth or Southwark there are some other great services where you can talk to someone about anything that's bothering you, in confidence:

And for young people living anywhere in the UK, remember you can contact Childline at anytime.
