CATCH app - Common Approach To Children's Health

Description

CATCH is a free health app aimed at parents and carers of children aged 0-5 who live in Cheshire East.

The CATCH app, which can also be used by expectant parents, is available for free on the App Store for iPhones and iPads and on the Play Store for Androids and tablets.

The app was developed by NHS Eastern Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS South Cheshire CCG and Cheshire East Council to provide:

  • NHS-approved health advice
  • highly localised information about healthcare services and support groups available in Cheshire East
  • timely notifications about key health dates, such as childhood immunisations
  • an interactive map of Cheshire East healthcare services, such as GP surgeries, dentists and pharmacies.

The app aims to give you the confidence to know when your child needs medical treatment or when self-care would be more appropriate. It is also highly personalised, as parents can input their child’s date of birth and it will only present health information and reminders that are relevant to their child’s age.

CATCH stands for "Common Approach To Children's Health", which encapsulates the joined-up approach to care that we have adopted in Cheshire East. In the NHS Eastern Cheshire CCG area, this takes the form of Caring Together and in the NHS South Cheshire CCG area, it's called Connecting Care.
