Our new animation to help you recognise the signs and symptoms of Strep A and when to seek medical help is now available in 4 languages – English, Polish, Arabic and Somali.

Cases of Strep A – a common type of bacteria often found on the skin or in the throat – remain high. While disabled children are not necessarily at more risk of catching this infection, children with weaker immune systems and low muscle tone can be more susceptible to getting Step A.
