Current Health Advice for Parents

Monday 20 April, 2020

Everyone is doing their bit to help beat Coronavirus. Do your bit by going to the right place for medical care.

It is important for parents and families to understand that our local emergency departments are still open for anyone who needs it. If you think your child has a very serious or life-threatening condition you must go to A&E or call 999.

If your child has a minor injury, please go to your nearest Minor Injuries Units at:

● South Bristol Community Hospital, Hengrove
● North Somerset Community Hospital, Clevedon
● West Gate Centre, Yate

If your child has a minor illness please contact your GP practice

Do your bit for the NHS.

Thank you.
