DIY Health Project has been awarded “Primary Care Team of the Year 2019” by the BMJ.
We run DIY Health Sessions which are weekly educational programme for parents of children under the age of 5 to manage their children’s health. This is a co-produced curriculum based on supporting parents to access the right help at the right time for minor ailments and draws on local resources to provide additional support.
The project aims to bring parents together to talk, share their experiences, and discuss common minor ailments to improve knowledge and skills, build confidence in managing their children’s health and importantly, build a social network of parents.
Throughout the years we have run sessions with many different cohorts of parents, and we have noticed a remarkable 36% decrease in primary care attendance for minor ailments among those that have attended sessions.
Due to the current social distancing rules and changes to the way we now have to operate these sessions will be run virtually in the near future.
