Your child's healthcare team
The various tests and treatments described may be provided by a range of healthcare professionals. These could include GPs, paediatric specialists (doctors who specialise in caring for children), nurses and healthcare assistants.
A member of your child's healthcare team should discuss your child's fever with you and explain any tests and treatments needed in detail. You should have the opportunity to ask questions – there is a list of questions you might like to ask to help you with this.
Some treatments described may not be suitable for your child, depending on their exact circumstances. If you think that your child's treatment or care does not match this advice, talk to their healthcare team.
