Advice for Parents during coronavirus:
Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious, If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself.
Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done.
We hope your child is well. We know you want to keep them safe. We want to reassure you that you can and should contact your GP if you have concerns about your child being unwell despite the disruption being caused by the Covid 19 pandemic. Coronavirus is unlikely to make your child seriously unwell but other illnesses or underlying chronic problems can. You should not delay in contacting your GP if you have concerns about your child's health. Please trust your instincts and call your GP if you are worried. Please call 999 in any life threatening emergency. Together we can keep your children well.

New NHS Guidance
NHS guidance has now changed and no longer supports prescribing of over the counter treatments for minor/self-limiting conditions. You can visit your local pharmacy to obtain treatments for minor health conditions and immediate clinical advice. If you have something more serious, the pharmacist is trained to signpost you to the right medical care. For further information, please click here.
