Advice for parents during coronavirus

Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself. Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done. The poster below has some advice to help you decide what to do if your child is unwell.

Do you want to help us improve experiences for families?

Are you a parent or carer of a child in Salford? Would you like to have a say in how services work for families? Can you help us make sure that children in Salford grow up safe, well and achieve their full potential?  We’d love you to join Salford Parent Panel and help us guide and grow the way we work with families in Salford.

In Salford, we want everyone who works with children, young people and families to really listen to what they are telling us. We have created a set of Salford standards for listening and we are learning about what has worked in other areas. Parents from Camden visited us recently to share what is working well. They explained how they are working together with professionals to shape services and make sure they get it right for children and families.

We’d like your views on different ways of working, based on your own experiences and what you think would work best for families. We might send you online surveys, or invite you in to focus groups or workshops. (We’ll pay your expenses and you’ll get a voucher as a thank you for your time).  We’d never ask for details about your journey or experiences, and if you change your mind at any time that is totally fine.

If you would like to join Salford Parent Panel, please complete the form below and we will be in touch. If you want to know more, you can call 0161 603 4350 or email
