Dr Yuheng Zhou is a local Teddington resident and a paediatrician with a special interest in acute, emergency care and global health. Each month, she will cover a general health topic, so we can work together to keep ourselves and our families healthy and safe.
This month, the focus will be on symptoms of severe illness in children, as it can be difficult to know what to do when your child is unwell
or injured, especially with changes in the health system due to coronavirus. The guide below (from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health – RCPCH) is a helpful reminder of what to look out for. Remember, NHS111, GPs and hospitals are always there to see your children if you are worried!
