Care Confident

Care Confident is an educational and communication resource aimed at supporting families with under-five-year-olds in better understanding the signs and symptoms of the most common childhood illnesses, helping them to know what to do, and when to worry. It also aims to help parents and carers keep their children healthy.

The guide helps families to deal with the six most common illnesses every child can get from time to time. By knowing how to care for your child at home and how to access the NHS advice services, you could avoid waiting a long time in A&E when you do not need to.
