Guidelines for good practice - management of acute and recurring sore throat and indications for tonsillectomy

Author(s)Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health
AbstractThese recommendations have been derived from an original guideline document produced by SIGN. This RCPCH guideline presents evidence-based recommendations for the management of acute and recurring sore throat and indications for tonsillectomy for children. It is aimed at those working in primary care, but is relevant to all health professionals who care for children with sore throat. The statements only address tonsillectomy for recurring sore throat and do not address tonsillectomy for suspected malignancy or as a treatment for sleep apnoea, peritonsillar abscess or other conditions. The aim of this guideline is to provide reasonable criteria for referral for tonsillectomy.
