Paediatricians have focused on the many different conditions and illnesses that can affect children’s health, welfare, behaviour and education. They also understand how different illnesses and conditions relate to each other.

- Write down all the questions you want to ask
- Make a list of any medications your child is taking, including complementary or alternative therapies. Include the dose (how much medicine) and how often your child takes it
- If you have a baby, take their health record booklet, which includes information from their Maternal and Child Health checks.
After your visit, your paediatrician will often send a letter back to your GP outlining their plans for the management of your child.
