Abstract

The checklist is based on recommendations from the SIGN guideline on Management of invasive meningococcal disease in children and young people (SIGN102) and also complies with NICE guidance on bacterial meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia in children and young people (CG102) and NICE Quality Standard (QS19). It aims to help paediatricians follow best practice when discharging a child recovering from bacterial meningitis or meningococcal septicaemia. We encourage you to put a completed copy in the child’s notes.
