Your healthcare team

A range of professionals who specialise in different areas of treatment or support may be involved. These could include midwives, health visitors, nurses, GPs, pharmacists, specialist nurses, paediatricians or other specialists. All of these professionals will be trained and experienced in providing particular treatments or support.

Working with you

If you are a parent or carer, a member of your child's healthcare team should explain the symptoms and what they mean, and any tests or treatments that may be offered, so that you can decide together what is best for your child.

If you are a young person with reflux, regurgitation or heartburn, your parent, carer or other family member may be involved in helping to make decisions, depending on your age.

There is a list of questions you can use to help you talk with your care team.

Some treatments or care described here may not be suitable for you. If you think that your treatment does not match this advice, talk to your care team.
