Advice and Emergency Access for Children

We are pleased to advise you that we provide dedicated appointments specifically for your child, to encourage parents not to take their children to A&E but to bring them to their GP instead where ever appropriate.

 The intention is to prevent you from potentially having to spend long periods of time in A&E for something that your GP could help with. 

 Please make an appointment in the usual way by contacting reception and asking for a children's appointment.

 ADVICE - IS YOUR CHILD UNWELL?

 The practice offers appointments daily for assessment of unwell children.  Some conditions can be managed with advice over the telephone or advice from the local pharmacist . 

 When considering if your child requires an urgent assessment the following information may be of use:   

    • Most common infections do not get better quicker with antibiotics 
    • Most children with a cold, cough, sore throat or earache who see their GP will still be ill 4 days later. This does not mean that they need treatment or need to be seen again. 
    • One third of children who have seen their GP with a cough will still be coughing 2 weeks later. This does not mean that they need treatment. 
    • Only children with signs of more serious illness generally need to be seen by a doctor or nurse. These signs include: 
      • Excessive drowsiness 
      • Difficulty breathing or rapid breathing 
      • Cold or discoloured hands &/or feet with warm body 
      • Abnormal pains in arms &/or legs 
      • Abnormal colour (pale or blue) 
      • Persistently high temperature not responding to medication
    • Symptoms related to meningitis 
      • Unusually severe headache 
      • A Stiff neck (difficulty putting chin to chest) 
      • Dislike of bright lights 
      • A rash that does not fade with pressure
