SOS e-Petition against GP Surgery cuts

Dear All,

Here is the joint petition that St Andrews, the Barkantine and the SOS Campaign team have formed together to fight against NHS cuts. We trust you will be able to support this campaign and will add your name to the petition.

This campaign means a lot to all of us  and the more support we can get behind it, the better chance we have of succeeding. You can read more and sign the petition here:

See the NHS Choices Conditions and Treatments browser for an in-depth description of many common health issues.


Childrens Health

There is a good guide on the NHS website which describes various conditions affecting children.  There is advice on how to diagnose them, how to treat them and if further advice should be consulted.

When Should I Worry?

Having an ill child can be a very scary experience for parents. If you understand more about the illness it can help you to feel more in control. This booklet is for parents (and older children) and deals with common infections in children who are normally healthy.

Fevers

Most symptoms of a fever in young children can be managed at home with infant paracetamol. If the fever is very high, they may have an infection that needs treating with antibiotics.  

 


Head Lice

Head lice are insects that live on the scalp and neck. They may make your head feel itchy. Although head lice may be embarrassing and sometimes uncomfortable, they don't usually cause illness. However, they won't clear up on their own and you need to treat them promptly


Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds (also known as epistaxis) are fairly common, especially in children, and can generally be easily treated.
