Bolton NHS Foundation Trust have released their winter illness advice - please read and share.
We are approaching winter and are beginning to see a rise in illness including respiratory and gastrointestinal disease.
Bolton NHS Foundation Trust have issued a number of useful tools that provide general guidance, prevention and care advice for use in schools, nurseries, playgroups, childminder and for families across the Bolton borough.
The NHS advise a proactive, preventative approach. A policy on management and exclusion of children and staff members due to illness should be decided by the school or care setting itself.
