    Nope I wouldn't for vomiting. Too much risk to take out in the public esp if it was constant and everyone knows how no contagious Gasto etc is. I would prefer to call the after hours doctors.

    If it was only 1 to 3 vomits in a 24 hour period, I would keep an eye on at home and keep as comfortable as possible and reassess when needed.

    Only if they needed antibiotics etc like when I suspected dd2 had another ear infection. Vomiting I wouldn't unless severe in which case I'd probably go straight to hospital.
    We have a home Dr service here if need be, much better option than dragging a sick child to a surgery where we sometimes wait up to half an hour plus to be seen

    I remember years ago when my eldest was 18 months (she's now 11) was sick for three days and wasn't drinking anything and screaming so I took her to the ER. They tried to give her fluids, tried giving her one of those hydrolyte icy-poles. She wasn't interested. They had to put a tube through her nose. She stayed in hospital for 8 hours. The next day she was ok.

    You can only miss s certain number of days a year before they won't give ccb/ccr for absences unless you have a certificate or genuine reason. Also depending on what they've had sometimes you need a certificate of health to return after illness.

    I would love to have a home doctor service where I live! It's basically impossible here to get in in anything less than three days.

    So I generally don't bother. As PP have said there is usually a huge wait (that's if I can even get in) of 90 minutes plus, and it's usually just to be told that he's got a virus, keep his fluids up, watch his temp, etc.

    With vomiting I wouldn't take him out of the house. If it continued or if he had a temperature that I couldn't get down I would go straight to the hospital which is only five minutes drive away and is usually empty.

    The problem is if you go to the hospital and it's bad enough they call one of the doctors from the surgery, which is why there's usually such a huge wait at the doctors! Good old rural health.

    Vomiting for under 24 hours - stay home, rest, fluids. As pp's have said I would only take a child to Dr for vomiting if unable to keep down fluids or severe vomiting over 24 hours or other worrying symptoms eg: very high fever, rash, light aversion. As luck would have it DD came down with gastro Thursday night, we are just chilling at home with lots of TV plus hydralyte icy poles. So gross.
    I generally only take DD to Dr for suspected secondary infections needing antibiotics (ear, chest infections) or asthma flare ups.
