In February we undertook 203 house visits. This is four times as many as other local practices of a similar size. House visits take a substantial amount of doctor time.

Group A Strep & Scarlet Fever

You may have seen in the news and online stories about Group A Strep.

The latest data from the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) shows that scarlet fever cases continue to remain higher than we would typically see at this time of year.

Scarlet fever is a contagious infection that mostly affects young children. It’s easily treated with antibiotics.

The first signs of scarlet fever can be flu-like symptoms, including a high temperature, a sore throat and swollen neck glands (a large lump on the side of your neck).
