 Important patient information: Measles

Measles is an infection that spreads very easily and can cause serious problems in some people. Cases of measles are increasing.

The main symptoms of measles are:

  • a high temperature (fever) and a rash alongside
  • a cough; or
  • red, sore, watery eyes; or
  • a runny or blocked nose.

If you think you or your child may have measles, contact us via the telephone.

Measles can spread to other people easily. Please do not visit the surgery or any healthcare setting, unless advised by a healthcare professional.

Measles usually starts with cold-like symptoms, followed by a rash a few days later. Some people may also get small spots in their mouth.

Having the MMR vaccine is the best way to prevent it.


Get vaccinated against measles

The MMR vaccine can prevent measles. It also protects you from mumps and rubella.

The MMR vaccine is offered to all children in the UK. 2 doses can give lifelong protection against measles, mumps, and rubella.

If your child has not had their first or second MMR vaccine, please call the surgery to book an appointment.

For more information on measles and the MMR vaccine, please visit the NHS website.



Studies Update

We are please to announce that we have received the 2023/2024 RSI Recognition Award for research study recruitment this year and we have also been promoted to a Level 3 Research Study Activity site.  We are very proud to help researchers find new treatments and outcomes for patients. All the studies are chosen because they benefit the patients who are registered at this Practice.
