Please consider alternatives as A&E at the children’s hospital is under pressure
The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children is asking parents to
carefully consider whether their children are in need of hospital
treatment before bringing them to Accident & Emergency at the
children's hospital. Parents can download the free HANDi App that
aims to provide advice and support when your child is unwell.
It offers simple and straightforward advice on what to do
and who to contact, including illness-specific home assessment
guidelines for common childhood illnesses. Go to www.bristolccg.nhs.uk and
search for the HANDi App and the links to download it. Advice on
choosing the most appropriate place to receive care is available on
the same website.
