RCGP RSS News FeedGPs on 'permanent alert' for signs of meningitis, says College
"GPs are on permanent alert for signs of meningitis in their patients and we do speak to the parents of babies and young children about what they need to look out for which may indicate that an illness could be developing into something much more serious.
"The College would certainly welcome new resources that GPs could share and discuss with patients and parents of young children, that raise awareness of the symptoms of meningitis, so that people can get the best possible care as quickly as possible.
"GPs also recognise that parents and carers are the ones who really know their child best and that listening to a parents' concerns about their child is often an important indicator of whether something is not right. This is something we will always try to take into account, along with any other physical, psychological and social factors potentially impacting on the health of the patient in front of us.
"Sepsis is a Spotlight project for the RCGP and we have developed high quality resources to support GPs and other members of the practice team identify possible cases of sepsis, which also includes a 'symptom checker' to illustrate the signs and symptoms to look out for."
