Back to school health advice

NHS 24 has offered a timely reminder to parents as children head back to school.

NHS 24 medical director, Professor George Crooks, said: “With children returning to school in the next week or two, what better time for parents to think about their children’s health?

“NHS inform includes a section on common health questions associated with children’s health with information on a wide variety of matters from diet and exercise to pain relief and blood types.

“There is also a section dedicated to answering questions you may have about vaccinations and you can also find out what to have in your first aid kit at home.’’
