Measles Outbreak

We currently have a measles outbreak locally and are advising patients to be vigilant.

Have you got a rash and do you feel very unwell – don’t go to the surgery, walk in centre or your local accident and emergency department – Call ahead, that way if you do have measles – you won’t pass it on to others – it can be a fatal disease if someone has a weak immune system and can’t fight it off – if a pregnant woman catches measles – it can harm her baby. Measles is serious, call ahead and get advice.
