Due to the pressures that are placed upon GPs and A&E departments during the winter months, the guidance enables parents to be aware of the medical advice relating to various winter illnesses – in particular letting them know where they should go to seek medical advice and if their child should remain off school. The ‘Parent Guide’ is a more user-friendly version of the Public Health document.
