Comments Off on Raising Awareness Of Childhood Cancer with the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust

We have teamed up with the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust to make parents aware of childhood cancer.

Order childhood cancer signs and symptoms awareness cards at no cost when ordering the PCHR. They are funded by the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust for childhood cancer (www.gracekellyladybird.co.uk), written by General Practitioners and supported by members of the Royal College of Paediatrics and the Institute of Health Visitors.

 

Other than accidents, childhood cancer is the number one cause of death of children in the UK. Despite this, often parents and clinicians are not aware of the signs and symptoms to look for and often there are delays in presentation and diagnosis. With almost 50% of cases of childhood cancer occurring in the under 5’s, teaching the signs and symptoms as part of the PCHR is invaluable to help save lives.

 

These cards have already been used by the Royal College of General Practice and also the Institute of Health Visitors to teach signs and symptoms to clinicians, Health visitors and parents. These cards are designed to highlight the signs and symptoms of all childhood cancers on just one card making it practical and accessible advice for parents, with the potential to save many lives.

 

This addition is completely funded by the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust for childhood cancer awareness and research, registered charity number 1167783.

The national PCHR has undergone further amendments to try and improve the information given to parents. This includes a few changes to dental health throughout the record to help reduce dental decay in young children. Amendments have also been made to the immunisation schedule and the 2.5 year integrated health review. To view these changes go to http://www.healthforallchildren.com/the-pchr/
