Tees Valley CCG, working with County Durham CCG, produced the Little Orange Book, designed to help the parents of poorly babies and small children. 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, a 111 call, or even a visit to Accident & Emergency is the right course of action.
