MEASLES OUTBREAK IN SURREY AND RISK OF IMPORTED MEASLES.
There is currently an outbreak of measles in Surrey. There are also confirmed measles outbreaks in Liverpool, Leeds and the West Midlands. There are also several large measles outbreaks across Europe, with Romania, Italy, Germany and Greece being the worst affected countries, and so there is a continued risk of imported cases.
If you think you've got measles call ahead.
Measles: Are you protected?
In view of the national outbreak of measles in the UK, we are in the process of making sure all our patients are fully protected.
All patients above age 10 are recommended to have had 2 doses of MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) to be fully covered. Please check your records and book an appointment with a nurse at Holbrook Surgery (01403 339818) for the MMR jab if you have not had 2 doses.
NO MORE PRESCRIPTIONS via gmail
Please use the online services or the website form for prescription requests as the gmail account will no longer be monitored for prescription requests. Gmail is no-longer considered a secure email account by the NHS for patient identifiable information.
