This DIY Health model was co-created by Bromley by Bow Health Partnership (BBBHP, Tower Hamlets, London) in partnership with the community it serves in response to a need identifiable across most general practices across the country. Parents of children under the age of 5 were frequently re-attending St Andrew's Health Centre (one of three surgeries run by BBBHP) for support with managing self-limiting childhood problems. These repeat visits led to a recognition that health care professionals needed to work better with parents and carers to identify how to provide knowledge and skills that ensure they were more confident to manage their children’s health at home, and when to seek further help. The model which this article describes was inspired by Dr Khyati Bakhai’s work during her Darzi Fellowship in Clinical Leadership and was co-produced in partnership with local parents.
