Children's A&E information

If your child is very unwell, we want to see them – we don't want parents to wait or to worry.

Children generally do NOT suffer serious illness as a result of COVID 19. This applies to even our most vulnerable children, yet some of the conditions that children will
become ill with are far more serious. If parents are concerned they should contact their GP or dial 111 or, if very worried, go to a local urgent care centre or to A&E.

We have measures in place to help protect people from COVID-19 and full personal protection equipment (PPE) is available for all consultations taking place with patients.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have prepared the information below with advice of when to seek medical help.
