Urgent referrals - Rapid referral clinic

Acutely ill child, who needs immediate attention – should be sent directly to Accident and Emergency.

For a baby with prolonged jaundice (14+ days):
    - if the child is otherwise well, should be referred to the ANNP clinic on the neonatal unit by contacting 07903 358839
