Health and development

It’s a real worry when your child becomes ill. Understandably, we don’t want to take any risks.

Here you will find useful information about registering with a GP, the importance of having a basic first aid kit, minor ailments and head lice and nits plus some other advice that will help keep your family healthy. You can find more information about child health on NHS UK and there are a number of apps available that offer further advice and support.

If you haven’t already done so, registering your child with a GP (family doctor) is important as your child may become ill and you will see a doctor much quicker when you need them.

Other NHS services are available, such as Urgent Care Centres, Hospitals and Dentists. To find your nearest ones see the ‘services near you’ section on the NHS website.
