Resources for parents

Both the NHS and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) have published advice sheets for anyone who is worried about a child's symptoms - while it is important to follow advice to stay at home, NHS111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care as always, so don't hesitate to contact them if necessary.

The RCPCH have lots of useful resources on their website including advice on symptoms and staying healthy, home activities for children, and a PDF book illustrated by Axel Scheffler designed to explain to children what's going on in an age appropriate way.

The NHS guide is shown below.
