Childrens Health

There is a good guide on the NHS website which describes various conditions affecting children.  There is advice on how to diagnose them, how to treat them and if further advice should be consulted.

When Should I Worry?

Having an ill child can be a very scary experience for parents. If you understand more about the illness it can help you to feel more in control. This booklet is for parents (and older children) and deals with common infections in children who are normally healthy.

Fevers

Most symptoms of a fever in young children can be managed at home with infant paracetamol. If the fever is very high, they may have an infection that needs treating with antibiotics.  

 


Head Lice

Head lice are insects that live on the scalp and neck. They may make your head feel itchy. Although head lice may be embarrassing and sometimes uncomfortable, they don't usually cause illness. However, they won't clear up on their own and you need to treat them promptly


Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds (also known as epistaxis) are fairly common, especially in children, and can generally be easily treated.

              NHS CARE DATA
           "YOUR CARE DATA"
         "YOU HAVE A CHOICE"

How Information about you helps the NHS to provide better care...

Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone.  The information along with your postcode and NHS number, BUT NOT YOUR NAME, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information.  This allows those planning NHS services, or, carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything.

If you have concerns, or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet "How information about you helps us provide better care"
