An exciting new digital tool designed to record children's key health and development milestones is now available to parents and parents-to-be in Tower Hamlets.
The eRedbook empowers parents to be more in control of their children's health by accessing and storing pregnancy scans, recording questions for upcoming health visitor and GP appointments through their digital devices. They can also view their child's clinical records, such as blood test results and immunisations.
The eRedbook gives parents and parents-to-be, expert guidance from when their child is a new-born until they turn five years old.
The Tower Hamlets Health Visiting team has been working behind the scenes for months to get the eRedbook up and running.
Jenny Gilmour, the Care Group's Clinical Director of Integrated 0-19 Services Health Visiting & School Health and Wellbeing, said: "We're thrilled to be an early adopter pilot site for the eRedbook and welcome it being rolled out across London."
"While the eRedbook will prove to be an invaluable resource for parents and parents-to-be, it will also enable parents and health professionals to work even more collaboratively together. Parents will be able to access their child's clinical records, such as blood test results and immunisations."
The development of the eRedbook has had clinical guidance and support from health organisations and partners and is an outcome of the 'Healthy Children' vision.
Also, because the eRedbook is part of NHS Login family, parents-to-be can also use their NHS login details to register for the eRedbook and automatically use it after their child's birth with no health professional intervention.
