Medicines for Children: practical and reliable information for parents and carers

November 2016

General Practitioners

Country of origin: UK

The vision of Medicines for Children is that any parent, wherever they are, have information on their child’s medicines that they need and can trust. Our medicines and general information leaflets and videos are available on our public website. The content is written and reviewed by pharmacists and paediatricians, with parents’ and carers’ input, and carries The Information Standard kitemark.

A recent Department of Health impact review demonstrates that an increasing number of people access the resource. Parents and carers overall found it useful, easy to understand, appealing and trustworthy; they would recommend to others. Healthcare professionals signpost the resource to the families they support in various ways. Recommendations to improve it included adding more content and formats and promoting to more families.
