Summer is here so many people will be planning weekends away and summer day trips with their families. As temperatures increase it’s worth taking time to read the NHS sun safety advice, and get to know what health help is available nearby should it be needed.
This summer holiday, parents are offered advice on what to do in the event their child gets a head injury.
Health professionals in Mid and South Essex have worked together to create a guide for parents on what to do when a child has had a head injury. The guide outlines common symptoms after a head injury, what parents can do to help their children to recover and advice on when to seek medical attention.
NHS Castle Point and Rochford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been rated ‘Good’ by the NHS England and Improvement annual assurance process.
