UK : Health chiefs in meningitis alert

Via The Leader :

" PARENTS, teachers and family doctors and their staff are being advised to be on the alert for symptoms of meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia.

Professor Qutub Syed, director, HPA North West, said: “We tend to see more cases of these diseases in the winter months so it is important for everyone to know what the symptoms are and to be prepared to take urgent action if a case is suspected.

“If parents or guardians think a child may have meningitis, they should call the doctor immediately or take the patient to the nearest accident and emergency unit."
