Urgent advice: National Measles Incident
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.

Asthma affects at least two people in fifty. By understanding the condition and how to treat it, you can help yourself and your doctor keep your asthma under control. Reviews (by appointment) are intended to:
- Educate patients about their asthma/COPD.
- Monitor them and where possible improve their control and therefore their lifestyles.
- Carry out lung function tests.
Clinics are run every week.
High blood pressure is a condition which if untreated can lead to damage of the eyes and kidneys and increase the incidence of heart disease. If you suffer from raised blood pressure, the doctor may ask you to attend the practice nurse for advice and monitoring of the problem. Remember that you are welcome to use the 'DIY' BP monitor in the reception area.
These are held weekly on a Thursday and are run by the practice nurse (with doctor support if necessary). Most of our diabetic patients are now looked after at these clinics, although some with particular problems will still go to hospital.
