Family Health Week 10 - 14 July

Healthy Together logo We are holding Family Health Week from Monday 10 July until Friday 14 July with a theme of accident prevention. Our Healthy Together public health nursing teams will be running a series of health promotion events in children's centres, schools, youth and community centres across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. 

Accident prevention

Accidents are a leading cause of death, serious injury and acquired disability for children in the UK, accounting for three deaths every week and more than 2,000 hospital admissions, according to figures provided by the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT). Many of these accidents are preventable. Our public health practitioners will be talking to children, young people and families about a range of topics from button batteries, minor injuries, safety in the home and appropriate child car seats to road safety, sun safety, food safety and internet safety.
