MEASLES UPDATE

Measles not only affects the young it can affect older people.  If you suspect you may have measles, you have a rash with a fever, please TELEPHONE the surgery first before arriving at the Reception Desk.  Where possible if you need to be seen we will arrange an appointment at the end of the surgery to minimise other patient contact and we may direct you to a side room.  Please book in via the RECEPTION DESK so these arrangements can be adhered to.

PLEASE CONSIDER OTHER PATIENTS - PREGNANT PATIENTS - THE OLDER GENERATION AND OF COURSE THE YOUNG - THANK YOU
