Medical advice

Sir - I would like to pass on a tip to other grandparents who have sole charge of visiting grandchildren during the holidays.

Make sure that you have details of your grandchild’s GP surgery and name of his/her GP - just in case you need to visit the Small Injuries Unit in Sidmouth Hospital.

Lack of this knowledge can cause delay in getting the treatment required.
