Children’s Health

The Big 6

The CCG has refreshed the ‘Big 6’ clinical advice sheets which were first launched in 2019. ‘The Big 6’ is an initiative aimed at helping primary care health professionals when assessing and treating the most common childhood illnesses.

It includes a series of clinically approved assessment tools and advice sheets for children aged 0-16 which are available to download below:

Bronchiolitis/Croup
Fever/Sepsis
Gastroenteritis
Head injury
Wheezy child/Asthma
Abdominal Pain

The assessment tools have been designed as a guide, however, as always it is important to note that it does not override the individual responsibility of the healthcare professional to make decisions appropriate to the circumstances of the individual patient in consultation with them.
