Resources - respiratory illnesses in children


We are preparing for a predicted increase in the number of respiratory illnesses in children as restrictions ease and people mix more. We are likely to see a rise in children needing treatment with cases higher than usual for this time of year and further increases expected over the winter months.

To support the system, we have made resources and support available on the ELHCP website for health and care professionals

The ELHCP webpage will be updated regularly and also includes leaflets on where local people can access local emergency services for children and young people, how to manage bronchitis and how to check for serious symptoms in babies.
