ICON, West Hampshire CCG
ICON is a multiagency Public Health programme, and aims to support parents and carers to cope with a crying baby and ultimately help prevent Abusive Head Trauma (AHT), a devastating form of child abuse. Hampshire would expect four cases of AHT each year, but the county has seen more than this – with one conviction in December 2018. It is aimed to reduce these cases, saving up to four or more lives a year.
