Ardens have designed templates to assist clinicians with assessing children (aged 0-18 years) remotely. The templates include guidance on questions to ask and decision-making around the patient's management. These templates are based on the Wessex NHS Healthier Together Pathways.


The following remote consultation templates are available:

  • Abdominal Pain in Child under 18
  • Child under 18 with Limp
  • Cough or Breathlessness in Child over 1 year
  • Cough or Breathlessness in Child under 1 year
  • Diarrhoea and Vomiting in Child under 18
  • Earache in Child under 18
  • Fever + Temperature in Child under 18
  • Head Injury in a Child under 18
  • Rash in a Child under 18
  • Sore throat in a Child under 18
  • Unsettled baby under 3m


Access the remote consultation templates in one of the following ways:

  • Click on the Run Template option within the consultation.
  • Click on the Add > Data using Template option outside of a consultation.


Clicking on either of the options above will display the Template Picker screen. Search for the relevant remote consultation template by typing "Remote" into the search box
