The CCG has refreshed the Big 6 advice sheets for parents and carers. These provide information to help parents and carers know what to do for the most common illnesses experienced by kids. They’re available here on the CCG website HERE

The advice sheets feature the most common illnesses in children aged 0-16 and cover:

  • Bronchiolitis/croup
  • Fever/Sepsis
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Head injury
  • Wheezy child/Asthma
  • Abdominal Pain

Included in the advice sheet is information on what the illness is and details of its symptoms. There are dedicated sections on how parents and carers can help relieve the symptoms along with practical advice to help their child’s recovery. This includes ways to treat your child at home.
