He said: “Be assertive and say ‘Look I’m very worried about my child because I’m worried about this Streptococcus infection, my child’s got a fever’.

“Explain what the symptoms are. [Say] ‘My child needs to be seen’.

“If you can’t get that GP appointment, if 111 can’t phone you back within a few hours and you’re worried, then you only have one alternative – go to A&E.”
