k u .co. mind our y think re #IFeelBetterWhen Thank you 117 Improving access to healthcare for a million young people The number of young people able to access our award-winning secure text messaging service, ChatHealth, has now reached one million across the country. ChatHealth enables young people of secondary school age to easily access confidential health advice. It was co-designed by LPT with both young people and school nurses to ensure that it effectively meets the needs of both young people and health professionals. Young people report that they like ChatHealth because it is a quick and easy way to get advice about their physical and emotional health, and because they can do this anonymously. We have recently made ChatHealth available to parents and carers of younger children, enabling them to contact a public health nurse easily in response to concerns about their child’s health. Innovative health websites for children and young people LPT’s ground breaking health promotion websites for children and young people provide valuable interactive and informative content supporting them with their health and wellbeing. LPT’s school nursing team launched the Health for Teens (www.healthforteens.co.uk) website in March 2015, following the success of the Health for Kids website (www.healthforkids.co.uk) a year earlier. Both sites were designed with input from local children and young people, and were the first NHS websites to provide tailored information for these audiences about a diverse range of physical and emotional health issues. All the content on both sites is written and overseen by health experts, and the sites have collectively received more than 92,500 unique visitors to date. Young onset dementia app Around 800 people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland who are younger than 65 have dementia. LPT has developed an innovative smartphone/tablet app for people with young onset dementia. It can be downloaded for free and brings together a wealth of resources for people with the condition. www.leics-his.nhs.uk/yodapp/
