My child has recently contracted a runny nose/ blocked nose, mild cough, sneezes - what should I do?

If your child has any symptoms, no matter how mild, please contact the Clinical Helpline by calling 01481 756938 or 01481 756969.

If you feel very unwell, phone 999 and tell the operator of your symptoms. Please do not visit your GP or the Emergency Department at the hospital unannounced.

If, following advice from the Clinical Helpline, you have been referred for a COVID-19 test you will be contacted by the Scheduling Team. Where possible, tests for symptomatic patients (those showing symptoms of COVID-19) are scheduled within 24 hours of calling the helpline.
