Please find below two helpful PDF booklets, The Litttle Orange Book was produced by Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group with invaluable help from GPs, Health Visitors, Practice Managers and Staff, Pharmacists, Paediatricians, Children's Nurses and Parents and Carers. It contains advice and tips on how to manage common illnesses and problems that babies and young children often experience in the first 5 years of their lives. It also has information on more serious conditions, what to look out for and how to get help.
LINK SAVVY has been designed by the Jesmond and Lower Gosforth Network of GP practices with the help of service users in order to provide links to apps, information and organisations which may be useful for Young People (18-25yrs) with, or at risk of developing mental health problems.
Whilst the main aim of LINK SAVVY is provide a supportive directory of services within the community that may assist your overall mental and emotional health. It does not replace professional medical advice and help. If you are concerned about your emotional or mental health, we would always suggest speaking to a health professional in order to properly assess your symptoms.
