  Swine Flu – New Guidance

We have previously passed comment on the government advice on Swine Flu in our update No.10 of 5th May 2009 which can be accessed here.  New guidance has been put out by the NHS regarding how they would prefer sufferers to access medical services given that we seem to be beyond the stage where attempts to contain it are of any effect.
North Yorkshire NHS have put out a guidance document that sets out how best to proceed if you think you have Swine flu and if you need anti-viral medication.  This is a PDF document and can be obtained by clicking here.  Thankfully it is only one page of data so is much shorter than previous publications.
