Keeping your baby or toddler well this winter

This year, doctors predict more children than ever in the UK will contract Respiratory Syncytial Virus or RSV – a common virus that cause coughs and colds in winter. It’s a highly infectious virus and the main cause of breathing difficulties (bronchiolitis) in young children. 

Our health lead Amanda Elliot has put together some Questions and Answers to help you protect your child from the virus, better understand the symptoms of bronchiolitis and know what to do if you baby or child becomes very unwell with breathing difficulties

And if your child is aged three or under why not sign up to join our babies and toddlers parent group and be the first to hear our latest information and advice to help your child stay well this winter.
