Update from Public Health England
Update from Public Health England Health Protection Team on Lyme Disease and Rabies information for patients
We wish to raise awareness of a number of Public Health England information leaflets that you may find useful this summer:
- During this time of year PHE encounters an increase in the number of cases of Lyme Disease, to assist you and your patients, PHE have created a one page summary about Lyme Disease (please see attached pdf) that includes where to access additional information and awareness raising resources.
PHE Lyme information
- Furthermore in relation to the risk of Rabies in the UK from bat bites, a ‘Bat contact and rabies risks’ leaflet https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/rabies-risks-from-bat-bites) has been developed to ensure health professionals and the public know what to do if someone experiences a bat bite. During this hotter weather, PHE have seen an increase in bat bites being reported across England and wish to raise awareness of risk.
We have introduced a new service that allows patients who are aged 18 and over and registered at the practice to consult with a GP electronically and offers alternatives to calling or coming into the surgery for common, more minor problems.
Using this service you can also access self-help content and alternative options available to you (eg pharmacy, symptom checkers). To access the service directly click on 'Get Started Now' on the banner above.
