My child is sick, when should I worry?

Kids are sick all the time. On average young children get ill 6-12 times a year so sometimes it can feel like they’re always poorly! The vast majority of the time they don’t need any specific treatment apart from lots of water, calpol and TLC. However, it can be really scary for parents, and how do you know when to worry?

The HANDi app has been developed locally to help parents feel more confident in looking after their poorly kids, and to let them know what to look out for and when to contact your GP surgery or even 999.
