New resources for parents during coronavirus
Since the start of the pandemic we have been working with local parents and Community and Maternity Champions to produce useful resources for parents during coronavirus
We know that now, more than ever, parents need trustworthy and clear information. Please help us to share these resources widely. We have sent them to local GPs and have been sharing them on Twitter and on WhatsApp via our Practice Champions
Please get in touch if you have any questions about the resources
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health produced this poster with advice on what to do if a child is unwell or injured during coronavirus. On the back of the poster you will find helpful links and answers to the frequently asked questions we have heard from parents

Resources for parents made before Covid-19
The booklet and checklist below were produced before COVID-19 but their advice is still relevant to parents today. There are three additional points for parent and carers to remember at the moment:
- If your child has any symptoms of coronavirus get a PCR test
- If you are worried about your child contact your GP or get help from NHS 111 online, for children under 5 call 111
- If your child has ‘amber’ symptoms and you can not get through to your GP or 111, call 999
We have been regularly updating our blog to answer the questions we have heard from patents. You will find lots of helpful links as well as information on local support
