It can be confusing to know what to do when your baby is unwell during the coronavirus pandemic. Remember that the NHS is still providing safe care.
GP practices and hospitals have made changes to help reduce the risk of infection. Only one parent/carer will be able to attend A&E with their child. Please use the hand sanitisers provided, wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.
Remember: if your baby is unwell, seek advice and medical attention.
Many parents in Devon have downloaded and use the Handi App to guide them when their child is ill. We recommend it to all parents – find it on the App store or Google Play.
