Paediatrics

In this episode, which has been recorded for Chronic Conditions Month 2021, Dr Steve Holmes (Clinical Respiratory Lead for NHS Somserset) and Dr Peter Bagshaw (Clinical Lead in Dementia and Mental Health, South Gloucestershire CCG) explore the impact that COVID-19 has had on mental health, including among people who have not been infected. How has self-isolation and shielding affected different people? What is the particular impact on children and younger people? What has the toll been on carers? Which people may struggle with "returning to normal"? How can we support people with "long COVID"? What is the potential role for talking therapies in this area?
In her first podcast for GPnotebook, Dr Kate Chesterman discusses new evidence on the management of children with non-blanching rashes with Dr Edward Snelson. Dr Snelson is a Consultant Emergency Paediatrician at Sheffield Children’s Hospital and is the author of the blog GPpaedstips. Should we be treating every non-blanching rash as meningococcal disease, and if not, why not? What important differentials do we want to consider in children with a fever and a non-blanching rash? Can GPs safely decide which children require emergency treatment?
