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.

"LocumDeck is so good and so intuitive that I am lost for words and utterly filled with glee.

It can send an email confirming the sessions that are booked and creates and emails invoices direct to the practice for you. These contain links to your beautifully laid out ‘credentials’ page with all your relevant documents, and a model contract that is all ready for you to accept or edit.

It automatically produces and sends the locum form A, and will produce locum form B. It also acts as the calendar... And it all happens automatically. It is really less than a minute to invoice and do the pension forms, with everything calculated perfectly."
