NHS Little Orange Book

The Little Orange Book – Every parent worries when our little ones are not well. But help is at hand!

The Little Orange Book was developed by NHS Newcastle Gateshead CCG in 2016 as a tool for parent/carers to manage their children’s minor illnesses and for health care professionals in their ability to support them in this. Distributed to all new mums in Gateshead, the book is focused on acute illness in young children and helps parents and carers to recognise and then respond appropriately to a range of diseases, illness and conditions as well as signposting parents to the most appropriate service or clinician should they need further support.
