CONFIRMED MEASLES OUTBREAK IN BRADFORD AREA
Measles is a serious illness which can be unpleasant and lead to complications, especially in vulnerable, immuno-compromised or pregnant patients
Measles is highly infectious to anyone who is not im-mune—being in the same room as someone with mea-sles for more than 15 minutes is a significant exposure
Measles symptoms can include:
Sore, red, watery eyes
Coughing and/or runny nose
Small red spots with bluish-white centres inside the mouth
A red-brown blotchy rash, which appears after several days
Anyone phoning the surgery with any of these symptoms will be asked not to come into the surgery or go into a walk-in centre or hospital A&E department where they could infect others. Arrangements will be made for them to receive clinical advice by telephone
Anyone presenting in the surgery with any of the above symptoms (the rash may not be present in the initial stages) will be assessed and isolated away from the main waiting area if there is any suspicion they could have measles
This sounds alarming but remember most people will be immune to measles—either because they have had two doses of MMR vaccination or generally healthy people born before 1970 are likely to have developed natural immunity. However, any immunocompromised patients, unvaccinated children and young people or pregnant women are vulnerable to the infection

HEPATITIS VACCINE - SHORTAGE
We have been advised that there is currently a global shortage of Hepatitis B vaccine which has been caused by problems in the manufacturing process.
There is also a global shortage of Hepatitis A vaccine due to supply issues.

Good Neighbours Leaflet
Making health and social care information accessible
The Accessible Information Standard will come into force from 31 July 2016 across health and social care in England.
Our aim is to make sure disabled people have access to information that they can understand and any communication support they might need
You can find out more by reading this guide in easy words and pictures.
You can also watch a video in British Sign Language (BSL) or listen to an audio recording.
We are currently working towards the standard. The first thing we need to do is to identify those people with information and communication needs.
Please help us to do this.
Let us know if you have a disability, impairment or sensory loss, and the kind of information and communication support that you need.
We will record this on your medical records. This will help us to be prepared the next time you use our services.
Have your say to improve your healthcare
Did you know you can now have your say to help improve more services across the NHS?
The Friends & Family Test gives patients the opportunity to provide quick feedback on their care and treatment experience.
You can say what is going well and what can be improved so that people who make decisions about local healthcare can take your views into account.
