Medicines For Children leaflets cover many of the medicines that are prescribed or recommended to children by children’s doctors (paediatricians), pharmacists or nurses.
They answer your questions, including: Why does your child need to take the medicine? When do you need to give the medicine? What if you forget to give the medicine, or give too much? Are there any possible side-effects (effects that we don’t want)
The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) produce information for parents and carers whose children will be undergoing anaesthetiss. The information was originally prepared by individual anaesthetists for the use of patients in their own hospital. Although the RCoA has not been directly involved in their production they can acknowledge that they meet the basic RCoA general standards for good quality patient information.
