This resource has been put together by NHS Enfield Clinical Commissioning Group.
This website contains helpful information for parents/carers of children from birth (and beyond). Every parent or carer wants to know how to do what is best for their growing baby and give them the best start in life. You can use this website to help you know what to do when your baby/child is ill. Learn how to care for your child at home, when to seek advice from a healthcare professional and when to contact emergency services.
Most of the issues you will come up against are simply an everyday part of growing up, often helped by a chat with your midwife or health visitor. Almost all babies, toddlers and children will get the most common childhood illnesses like chickenpox, colds, sore throats and ear infections. While these are not very nice at the time they are easily treated at home with the support from your healthcare professional rather than going to A&E.
If you are worried you must get further advice - trust your instincts.
