Advice for parents and carers.

These are extremely challenging and worrying times for families meaning, more than usual, parents and carers may be unsure of what to do when their child is unwell or injured.

Click  HERE  for a poster which gives guidance on children’s health to enable parents to assess when they should be seeking help. It consists of a red, amber and green traffic light system advising parents of which symptoms require them to seek urgent medical advice and the options available to them.

The school nurse service in Brighton and Hove, although not actually visiting schools, are still available to offer advice and support.   Click  HERE for more information.
