Nice | Gatroesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD) in Children

This is a new guideline from Nice on the management of GORD in infants and children.

The main differences from common practice is that they advice that PPI or H2 antagonists are only used if other specific symptoms are present too (see below). Most children with isolated GORD need no treatment.

GORD in infants

Reassure parents that gastroesophageal reflux is a normal process. GORD (where it causes symptoms) is present in 40% of infants. Most therefore need no treatment and just reassurance that it will get better with time.

"A must-have for any GP locum.

I have used NASGP website since I started locuming three years ago. It caters for all my locum needs, and I found LocumDeck particularly useful for bookings and invoicing. The automatically-generated invoices and pension forms save me countless hours of admin time every month, and the recently introduced e-signed forms are brilliant.

The assistance I have received has always been quick and helpful. The forums and updates have also kept me in the loop with important issues which may affect my practice.

I cannot recommend this website enough. "
