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?
