Measles Outbreak in Surrey
There is currently an outbreak of measles in Surrey. There are also confirmed measles outbreaks in Liverpool, Leeds and the West Midlands, as well as large outbreaks across Europe with Romania, Italy, Germany and Greece being the worst affected countries.
If you have a rash and don't feel very well, please do not come to the surgery or attend your local A&E. Call us or NHS 111 for advice - that way, if you do have measles, you won't pass it on to anyone else. It can be a fatal disease if someone has a weak immune system and can't fight it off, or if a pregnant woman catches measles, it can harm the baby.
Measles is serious - call ahead and get advice! See the poster below from Public Health England.
