The NHS Direct Wales website is the main NHS portal in Wales for consumer health information and is a source of information that can assist the public in managing their own and their families health.
We are writing to let you know about some of the information and resources available on the NHS Direct Wales websitewww.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk which may be useful for you as a school and to parents/guardians.
The website has an A-Z encyclopaedia of conditions, tests and treatments with topics like head lice and chickenpox . We also have the full childhood vaccination schedule and information about each vaccine.
One of the newer features is a head lice symptom checker which will allow parents/guardians to assess their child’s symptoms and give useful information and advice on what to do next.
Also why not follow us on Twitter @NHSDirectWales and like us on Facebook - NHS Direct Wales.
