Childhood Illnesses

Childhood illnesses……what can I do?

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Integrated Care Services have produce a clear and helpful guide for parents and carergivers.

From common colds and coughs through to more serious conditions such as sepsis and meningitis, this guide will give you the information you need to take care of your child and let you know where to seek support, help and guidance when you and your family most need it.

There are many childhood illnesses that can be treated at home, by a pharmacist or by your GP. This link gives you information on a range of illnesses, and lets you know when you should seek urgent medical treatment. It also includes the vaccinations that your child should have from birth until they start school.
