School? Or too unwell for school? That is the question!

A new online tool has been created to help parents to decide when their child should be kept off school if they become unwell this winter.

The Healthier Together website brings together a useful checklist of common childhood illnesses and offers appropriate advice on whether a child can be sent to school depending on their symptoms and possible remedies.

It also gives up to date medical advice on how to look after your child should they become unwell and where you should go to access services.

The Healthier Together campaign is a joint initiative between the NHS and the County Council’s Public Health team and was designed as an easy one-stop shop online advice service for parents.
