The Little Orange Book is a great resource and covers everything from common minor ailments like teething, constipation, and colds, through to more serious conditions like urinary tract infections and wheezy chests. The booklet uses a traffic light system to help parents and carers decide what action to take when their child is sick. It points parents in the right direction, letting them know whether self-care, consulting with a primary care professional (Pharmacist or GP), a 111 call, or even a visit to Accident & Emergency is the right course of action.

The Little Orange Book is available to download share with others, whether as an emailed PDF or a link via social media.
