Urgent advice: National Measles Vaccination
Cases of measles are on the rise in England and there is a growing public health risk. This has been declared a national incident.
You can read the most uptodate advice and guidance regarding this here. If you’ve not had the 2 doses of the MMR vaccination then full details are provided on where to get vaccinated.
If you have symptoms of measles stay at home and phone your GP or NHS 111.
Please DO NOT attend the surgery or A&E without informing them that you think you have measles before your visit – you could spread the illness to others.

If you are a carer it is also important that you have a flu vaccination.
Flu vaccinations for children may be given at school or in practice and only for specific age ranges or for those in an at risk group. You will be notified if your child is entitled to a flu vaccination.
Do you need vaccinations?
Our nurses can provide travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.
