What do we do?

Here at the Children and Young People's Health Partnership (CYPHP), our specialist children's constipation nurses work with a children's pharmacist and emotional wellbeing professionals to make sure we are looking after your child and family as best we can. Emotional and behavioural issues are understandably common in children and young people with long-term or chronic conditions – no CYP wants to be "ill" or "different" in a way they don't choose. At CYPHP we're here to help you and your family with all that concerns you and your child.

We can see you at your home or at a nearby clinic, and we make sure other healthcare professionals, who are involved in your child's care, know what's going on.

We have just started so cannot yet offer our service to children across all of Lambeth and Southwark, but please do speak to your hospital doctor about us if you think you and your child could benefit from our service.

 

 

Invest a few minutes to complete your Health Check and we will send you your child's FREE Health Support Pack with resources and top tips to manage your child's symptoms.
