At this challenging time, we are aware of a risk that parents may delay bringing their child to the attention of a healthcare professional even if they are unwell because of concerns about COVID-19. It is important to note that COVID-19 is unlikely to make your child seriously unwell but all the ‘normal’ illnesses that can make children severely unwell still remain, so it is important to reach out to a health professional if you are concerned about your child’s symptoms. GPs and hospitals are still providing the same care as usual for children who become unwell. If you are not sure if your child is unwell and whether they need to be seen, click here, call 111 or phone us at the surgery. For information about crying babies, click here). If your child appears severely unwell and advice is not quickly available, call 999 or take them to A&E as you would in other times.
