Child Health During The COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 is unlikely to cause a serious illness in children, but please remember children can still become seriously unwell from other causes that are always around. Please do not let concerns over COVID-19 stop you from contacting medical services.

If you are not sure if your child needs to be seen please go to for advice or contact 111 or your GP.
