However, if you are worried about your child's symptoms and would like an initial opinion, you can also call the medical assistants on 0844 022 022 or +41 22 737 47 57 They will advise you and direct you to the most appropriate medical facility depending on where you live, the seriousness of your child's symptoms and the availability of paediatricians on call.
