Deteriorating Health

Please see below some resources to support you in recognising the signs that someone’s health is deteriorating.

Stop & Watch Tool

Stop and Watch is a tool that everyone can use to help spot the warning signs that a person’s condition is deteriorating. Stop and Watch is just as relevant for children and young people as it is for adults and provides prompts to look out for that might be a sign that a person’s condition is deteriorating so that urgent help can be sought.

By recognising these signs you can reduce a person’s risk of morbidity, further disability, organ failure, or sometimes even death.
