Important information for parents and carers of children

We have had information from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, that some children have sadly died of things unrelated to Covid-19, because parents have brought them to see a doctor later than they might usually have done.

COVID-19 is extremely unlikely to cause severe illness in a child– most children exhibit very few or no symptoms when infected. So if you have an unwell child, continue to seek healthcare support as you would do normally, and do not assume symptoms are Covid-related.
