Lots of people help to keep you safe and healthy, including your teachers, parents and your friends.
If you are feeling poorly, your parents/carers might take you to see a doctor. A doctor is sometimes called a GP which stands for General Practitioner.
The doctor is a person who knows how to help you stay healthy and how to help you get better when you are sick or hurt.
Finding what’s wrong
When you go to see the doctor they will ask you questions to try and find out what is making you feel poorly. They might give you a check-up, also called a physical examination to try and find out what is wrong.
They might look in your ears and throat too, and sometimes they might listen to your heart and lungs.
Sometimes doctors check your temperature using a thermometer. If you are too hot, it might mean that your body is working hard to fight off an infection.
Helping to make you better
The doctor will then make a plan to help you get better. This might include giving you some medicine, which might not taste very nice but will help make you better. He might also tell you that you are okay.
