Symptoms In Children

At this challenging time, it is extremely important for you to know that COVID-19 is unlikely to make your child unwell, but they like everyone else might be infectious so staying at home when well remains the message.  Please click here to view coronavirus symptoms in children.

However, all the ‘normal’ illnesses that can make children severely unwell still remain and there is a major risk that parents may delay bringing their child to the attention of a healthcare professionals even if they are unwell because of concerns about COVID-19. 

GP’s and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done for children.

If you are not sure if your child is unwell and whether they need to be seen, click here https://www.what0-18.nhs.uk/national call 111 or contact your GP.

If your child appears severely unwell and advice is not quickly available call 999 or take them to ED as you would in other times.
