Any parent, or care giver to a child, will know it’s completely normal to not always know what to do for the best when your child is unwell.

Sometimes, the symptoms are completely obvious, like a runny nose or a cough. At other times, it can be challenging to pinpoint the ‘exact’ issue, how serious it is and what the best course of action might be.

Although most common ailments, tend to resolve on their own, it is crucial for parents to be equipped with the knowledge on how to handle their child's illness and recognise those important warning signs.

That’s why ‘The Children's Health Matters Guide’ has been created. A thoughtfully put together guide that provides parents, grandparents, and caregivers in Essex with convenient access to NHS advice all in one place. You can visit the guide at Children's Health Matters
