Families are also urged to ensure they still seek medical help if their child is unwell or injured.

Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same care that they have always done.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has a range of advice for parents and carers on children accessing treatment and attending medical appointments during the coronavirus outbreak.

Go to www.rcpch.ac.uk/key-topics/covid-19 for more information as well as tips on stay at home activities for children and young people.
