The book covers common minor illness, treatment and also times to seek medical assistance. They are available upon request via the Health Visitor or can be viewed online here.

Childhood Immunisations

Vaccines work by making us produce antibodies to fight disease without actually infecting us with the disease. If the vaccinated person then comes into contact with the disease itself, their immune system will recognise it and immediately produce the antibodies they need to fight it. Download this checklist of the vaccines that are offered to Children in the UK free of charge on the NHS and the ages at which they should ideally be given.
