Sep ' 16 - Newsflash - There is currently a measles outbreak in the South West of England. If you are born after 1970 and are not immunised against measles you can ring reception and book for the vaccination at the surgery. * 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.
