Stop & Watch

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.

All of the Stop and Watch materials are free to use and are available here:
