Measles is highly infectious, the most infectious of all diseases transmitted through the respiratory route. Measles can be severe, particularly in immunosuppressed individuals and young infants. It is also more severe in pregnancy, and increases the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, or preterm delivery.
Recently we have seen a national increase in the number of cases of Measles.
If you suspect you or a member of your family have Measles, please do attend the surgery in person. Please call for advice.
