GOSH statement on cases of children with symptoms including fever and abdominal pain

28 Apr 2020, 9:45 a.m.

A Great Ormond Street Hospital spokesperson said: “Across the UK, a small number of very sick children have sought medical advice from the NHS with a particular set of symptoms, including a fever and abdominal pain. We are working with colleagues across the NHS to try to understand why this is, any relationship with COVID-19 and how to best treat these patients.“The NHS is open as usual for emergency care. If you are in any way worried about the health of a child in your care, you should get help as soon as possible. That means getting in touch with your GP as you would normally do or contacting NHS 111, who now have a dedicated paediatric line. If you are very worried and need urgent care, you should call 999 or go to your local A&E.”
