Measles in the borough

Posted by: saidurrahman - Posted on:

We are currently experiencing a rise in measles in the borough. Measles is an infection that spreads very easily and can cause serious problems in some people. Please call your GP surgery before you walk in or call NHS 111 for advice if you suspect, you or your child may have measles. If you need to visit A&E in an emergency, it is important that you inform the team as soon as you arrive to reduce transmitting the virus to other at-risk patients in the waiting area. For more advice including signs and symptoms, please visit the NHS webpage

The vast majority of measles cases are among unvaccinated children. If you or your child are not vaccinated, please consider booking an appointment with one of our practice nurses. If you’re unsure, they will talk through the risks with you. Please find more information on the MMR vaccine via
