Improving the quality of care for children and young people in Glasgow
It can be very stressful when your child is unwell. We know that there is a huge amount of information available at your fingertips, but finding something that provides clear and accurate information is not always easy!
The resources on the Royal Hospital for Children Glasgow (RHCG) website/app have been developed with our multi-disciplinary team to help ensure you can find everything you need to know about your child coming to hospital.
Our parent and young people advice has been developed in partnership between our hospital medical staff and primary care colleagues and adapted with permission from the Healthier Together initiative. You'll find information on common childhood illnesses, including advice on 'red-flag' warning signs to look out for, when and where to seek help and how to keep your child comfortable. Our information is regularly reviewed by our team to make sure we are giving you accurate and up-to-date advice.
This information has been developed alongside our professional resource to be used not only by parents but also by healthcare professionals. We want your child to receive consistently high-quality care, irrespective of which healthcare provider you take them to see.
