Is your child unwell?

Please use this Spotting sepsis and serious illness in children leaflet if you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, especially if their illness seems different to any previous illness they’ve had, or if they are ‘just not right’ (even if their temperature falls).

This information will help you monitor your child’s condition so you know:

  • When to ask for help
  • Where to go
  • How to describe the symptoms

It’s sometimes hard to be sure about particular signs and symptoms. If you feel that your child may be seriously ill, contact your GP surgery, NHS 111 or dial 999 according to your level of concern.
