An Important Message to Patients

Dear parents, during these worrying times we want to help you keep your family safe. Most children with Covid-19 are not badly affected, so ‘stay at home’ is the message unless they seem to be getting more seriously unwell. For all the other illnesses which affect children, the NHS is still here for you and ready to help – GP surgeries, hospitals, and other frontline staff.

If you need advice, visit www.what0-18.nhs.uk/national or NHS111 online or contact your GP. For information about crying babies, visit www.iconcope.org/parentsadvice.

Remember – if your child is severely unwell and advice is not quickly available call 999, or go to ED.
