TiNY Health was founded by a paediatric nurse and doctor team in 2016. Our goal is to change how children are communicated with within the healthcare setting and to help parents to understand and manage common childhood illnesses.Β  We are doing this through the creation of highly engaging, educational resources for health care professionals, parents and children.
