Healthy Gems comes to GM

Its hard being a parent or carer of young children, and it is even harder when your child is unwell. How do you know if they are really, really ill? What do you do if they are ill with a cough and a cold but are entirely miserable? How do you know when they have a temperature?

With GPs and Nurses, SHF has developed a Healthy Gems programme that will answer these and other health related questions that mums, dads and carers have, with the aim of improving confidence, developing a network of local support along with some top tips from health professionals and other parents and grandparents who have been there before. Healthy Gems is a 2 part course being delivered by a professional and approachable team in libraries, Sure Start centres, GP surgeries across GM and those who complete the course receive a goody bag with items such as a thermometer, sippy cup, toothbrush and toothpaste sponsored by Shared Health.
