Bury & Rochdale Care Organisation is launching a new way for parents/carers of children 0-19 to get advice and support about health related issues from 6th July 2020.
Parent/carers can send a text to 07507333482 We can help with all kinds of things like:
• Bottle feeding
• Introducing solids
• Child health
• Adjusting to parenting
• Toddler behaviour
• Minor incidents and illnesses
The Parentline messaging service is run by HMR Health Visiting and School Nurses and is available 09:00-16:30 Monday to Friday (exc. Bank Holidays). We aim to reply to messages within one working day and families should get an immediate bounce back to confirm we have received the text. Texts will not be seen outside of normal working hours. If help is needed before the client hears back from us, they will be advised to contact their GP, NHS 111 or dial 999 if it is an emergency.
