Swine Flu Information

Patients who believe they have flu are asked to contact their GP or NHS Direct on 0845 4647 for further advice.

Recognise the symptoms of swine flu:

  • Establishing 'flu friends' - friends and relatives who can help if you fall ill
  • Keeping paracetamol-based cold remedies in the house
  • Having a thermometer available so you can check your temperature if needed

Note: If you have elderly or vulnerable neighbours please check on them. They may need your help but be reluctant to ask for it. It is important you do what you can.
