If you are a parent or carer of a child under five years old then this new guide, Common childhood illnesses, may be useful.  

It has information on:

  • what to do if your child is ill
  • what local NHS services are available, eg pharmacies, walk-in centres, A&Es
  • what kind of health issue the different services should be used for.

The guide is available online, and printed booklets are also available from health visitors and children’s centres.
