New guide for parents and carers to help poorly children
As children go back to school after the holidays, it’s prime time for illnesses to spread. A new handy guide has been released to help people look after poorly children when they have a common childhood illness like a cough or cold.
The ‘feeling poorly’ guide has been put together by local GPs from the three NHS Bradford district and Craven clinical commissioning groups (CCGs). It aims to give advice about managing common illnesses at home and identifying when you should get further help from local health and care services.
The guide is small enough to keep in a pocket, changing bag or fit into a small drawer at home for quick advice about a range of illnesses including asthma, constipation and fever.
