Parents & Carers

CYPHP services currently suspended.

This is because the CYPHP Health Team and In-reach colleagues are 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?

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 163 Kb).

At this time, please follow the advice and guidance from Public Health England to look after yourselves and your families. The CYPHP Health Team will be in touch once services are able to resume their usual activities. 

We value feedback from local parents and carers on our service - click on our Get Involved page to learn more about upcoming opportunities to work with us, or to share your thoughts with us today.
