Why use HANDi?

HANDi is designed to help you know what to do when your child is unwell – whether that’s looking after them at home, taking them to see a GP, using the NHS 111 service, or visiting an urgent care service.

If your child is unwell, HANDi will ask you questions about your child’s condition to help you decide the best course of action – and with all the advice on HANDi developed and approved by local NHS paediatricians and other healthcare professionals, you can rest assured that you’re getting the best possible advice.
