Childhood health advice

Every parent or carer wants to know what to do when a child is ill, especially during the winter period. In this short video local GP, Dr Mike Baker, talks about some common childhood winter illnesses such as coughs, colds and tummy bugs, and how you can best care for your child.

Parents and carers can also download the Guide for Parents and Carers of children from 0-5 - common childhood illnesses, which will help you to care for your child at home, to know when to call the GP and when to contact the emergency services.

Other helpful health advice is available on the NHS website at
