Child Health Advice

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

NHS England in line with the 111 service have produced a useful booklet for parents (and older children) and deals with common infections in children who are normally healthy.

The booklet is called ‘When should I worry?’ and is available here

It is not meant for children who have ongoing health problems such as asthma, heart, or kidney problems.

You should not rely on the advice in this leaflet for children who are less than 3 months old. Babies younger than this can respond differently to infections.

In addition, there is a this great resource for parents which has been shared with us from Newcastle & Gateshead CCG. It’s called ‘The little Orange Book‘ and covers a lot of topics, common to child health.
