It’s a topic that most parents would hopefully never need to give much thought to. Most parents would never wish to experience the fear and worry that accompanies seeing their child through a hospital stay.

It is really upsetting to hear about these stories in the news, it really got me thinking about what I would do in these situations.
Going on holiday is a time of year that everyone in the family looks forward to; the one highlight of the year that they know they will be free from early morning phone calls, a mad rush to the office or school and all those stressors that make everyday living sheer hell on earth.

Do you know what steps you should take?
