Common Childhood Illnesses & Wellbeing

The Common Childhood Illnesses booklet is a comprehensive resource that provides advice and guidance on how to safely manage common childhood illnesses and when and where to seek support and help from health services.

The booklet is a guide for parents and carers of children and has been developed in conjunction with Lancashire County Council to incorporate local messages and contact details. It is also part of a wider NHS East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) strategy to reduce hospital attendances and admissions for paediatric patients.
