When Should I Worry?

When Should I Worry? 

Having an ill child can be a very scary experience for a parent, if you understand more about the illness it can help you to feel more in control. 

The below booklet and videos are aimed to help parents (and older children) understand common infections in children who are normally healthy. The intention is to inform parents/guardians about simple self management measures they can employ to look after their children without taking up GP appointments desperately needed for those sicker children who do need to be seen.

We will not stop access to the GP appointments for sick children and you should still contact your GP if you are concerned for your child.
