Sore throats in children

Updated: Sep 1, 2019

If your child has a sore throat please tell the receptionist when you are booking an appointment and your child may be seen sooner. Sore throats in children can lead to rheumatic fever and need to be treated as soon as possible.


Rheumatic fever is a serious but preventable illness. It mainly affects Māori and Pacific children and young people (aged 4 to 19 years), especially if they have other family members who have had rheumatic fever.
