Children and young people

Making the right decision about your child’s healthcare needs is difficult at the best of times and even more so right now with Covid-19 changing the way we think about and interact with health services – but rest assured we are still here and ready to care for you and your family.

We are currently seeing high numbers of children with respiratory infections, stomach bugs and high temperatures and often it can be difficult as a parent to decide what to do next. This 'is it serious' document, pictured below, can be downloaded and used to inform your decision about what help or support you might need to care for your child. More detailed information can also be found on our page on caring for your unwell child.
