Healthier Together - a South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Initiative
This website provides pregnant women, babies, children and young people across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw with consistent and high-quality advice from local health professionals.
You'll find clear information on common childhood illnesses, including advice on what 'red-flag' signs to look out for, where to seek help if required and how long your child's symptoms are likely to last.
Healthier Together is a partnership project which continues to grow by putting children, young people and family’s needs at the heart of the website.

ANTIBIOTIC PRESCRIBING - Antibiotic resistance is not a distant threat but is in fact one of the most dangerous global crisis facing the world today. Taking antibiotics when you don't need them puts you and your family at risk of developing infections which cannot be easily treated with antibiotics. Without urgent action from all of us, common infections, minor injuries and routine operations will become much riskier.
We urge patients with long-term health conditions, pregnant women, children aged 2-3 years and over 50 years, to have a flu vaccination to help.

When to order your repeat prescriptions
We recommend ordering your repeat medications 7 -10 days before your supply is due to run out.
This gives enough time for us to issue your repeat prescription and time for you to collect or have your items delivered from your pharmacist. We work with you and your pharmacist to ensure you get your items safely and on time.
