HealthGuidance

HealthGuidance is an online portal that can be used by specialist healthcare teams to deliver prescribed health information. Ideal for supporting service users that are receiving specialist treatment or with long term conditions.

Since launching HealthGuidance in January 2021, we have enabled 12 online content libraries to go live.

High-quality video content has been produced and curated by a number of innovative CAMHS and specialist Paediatric teams to support children and young people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland with specialist health needs such as:

  • sensory difficulties
  • co-ordination difficulties
  • continence issues
  • neurological conditions, such as autism or ADHD
  • and various other health needs
