Information on Covid-19 available for parents and carers

Published on: 26th July 2021

The NHS in North West London have produced a range of leaflets and guidance for parents, carers and people who work with children and young people on Covid-19 and how to access local emergency services at this time.

Dr Mando Watson, Consultant Paediatrician at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, said: “We know parents and many people who look after children are worried about the affect Covid-19 will have on their children, so it’s important that they have trusted information from a trusted source such as the NHS to guide them.

“We have produced a range of materials that give guidance on the effect of Covid-19 on children and young people and what to look out for plus information on vaccinations. 

“If children get sick or are in an accident and need to use emergency services, it’s also important that they know that the NHS has services specifically designed for children and young people and that all the A&E Departments at our hospitals in North West London have taken steps to ensure the safety of patients during coronavirus.”
