Parents reminded to seek medical advice – NHS is still open for business

If your child is feeling unwell make sure you seek medical advice – the doors of the NHS are still open.

This traffic light guide from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health will help you decide whether you should phone NHS 111, contact your GP surgery, or go to the hospital.

Dr Carol Ewing, Chair, Greater Manchester Children’s Health and Wellbeing Forum, said: “Coronavirus is infectious to children but rarely serious. If your child is unwell or injured please do not delay. Get help. NHS 111, GPs and hospitals still provide the same safe care they always have.”
