NICE has published new guidance on urinary tract infections in childrenand chronic fatigue syndrome/ME.
The UTI guidance states infants and children presenting with unexplained fever of 38 degrees or higher should have a urine sample tested within 24 hours.
NICE and the National Collaborating Centre for Women's and Children's Health have published a clinical guideline on the best ways to diagnose and manage UTI in children aged under 16.
It cites pain when passing urine, needing to pass urine more frequently, wetting, tummy pain and unpleasant smelling urine as specific signs of UTI.
The guidance also states that infants younger than three months with suspected UTI should be referred immediately to a paediatric specialist.
Meanwhile, the guidance on chronic fatigue syndrome recommends diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome/ME four months after symptoms have persisted.
Individual management plans should be put in place and cognitive behavioural therapy and graded exercise therapy should be offered to people with mild or moderate chronic fatigue syndrome.
