Patient Decision Aids

Decision Aids are designed to help people make decisions about difficult healthcare choices. They have good quality information about all the options and the health problem, and questions to help you think about what is important to you. Going through a Decision Aid will help you make an informed decision about which option is best for you.

A variety of decision aids can be found here: http://sdm.rightcare.nhs.uk/pda/

A guide for parents and carers of children under five.

www.childhealthberkshirewest.nhs.uk

Children may seem unwell for a variety of reasons and sometimes all you need is some medical advice to help you to decide what care is best for them.

The Berkshire West Clinical Commissioning Groups have commissioned www.childhealthberkshirewest.nhs.uk - a website that puts the right information at your fingertips.

It is easy to use and available in the four languages most used in Berkshire West; English, Urdu, Polish and Punjabi. The website offers onscreen advice for the most common childhood illnesses most likely to affect a child under five. There is also an audio assistant in both English and Polish.

So, if you’ve ever been awake in the middle of the night with a sick child and not sure what the matter is, or you recognise your child’s symptoms and just want some reassurance that you are providing the right care, then go to the Berkshire West Common Childhood Illnesses website for immediate advice.

Choose Well

A&E and 999 services are for emergency and life-threatening conditions only. Your local high street pharmacy offers convenient advice for a range of common illnesses and injuries, such as coughs, colds, sore throats, upset stomachs, aches and pains.

For information on choosing the right service visit www.nhs.uk

Also see the minor illness tab on the right hand side for further information.
