IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD YOUR FLU VACCINE YET PLEASE RE-THINK:
Influenza A and B viruses are circulating widely in the community and this has led to 21 hospital admissions in the last 10 days – 3 of these have been on ICU.
There is also a nursing home outbreak of influenza A, which has resulted in a number of hospital admissions and two possibly related deaths: the home remains closed to admissions.
If you haven't already done so please book an appointment or call into the surgery for your free flu vaccination.

What to do if you have a FLU like illness
If you're otherwise fit and healthy, there's usually no need to see a doctor if you have flu-like symptoms.
The best remedy is to rest at home, keep warm and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration (http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Dehydration/Pages/Introduction.aspx) . You can take paracetamol (http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Painkillers-paracetamol/Pages/Introduction.aspx) or ibuprofen (http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Painkillers-ibuprofen/Pages/Introduction.aspx) to lower a high temperature and relieve aches if necessary.
Stay off work or school until you're feeling better. For most people, this will take about a week.
