Update on the Measles Outbreak

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

Measles is extremely infectious and can be serious.

Symptoms include high fever; sore red, watery eyes; coughing; aching; a blotchy red brown rash, which usually appears after the first symptoms.

If you do develop symptoms of measles, stay at home and phone NHS 111 for advice. Stay away from GP surgeries and A&E - you could spread the illness to others.

Please do not present to the practice as you will be asked to wait outside.

If you, or your child, has never had the MMR vaccine or only had 1 dose of the MMR vaccine - please contact the surgery immediately to book an appointment with the nurse.
