Public Health England have advised us that there is an emerging outbreak of a flu like illness in schools in Romsey, Totton and Southampton.
Children seem to be developing cough, colds and fever. These symptoms can usually be safely managed at home without needing medical assessment. The Wessex Healthier Together (NHS) website www.what0-18.nhs.uk gives excellent advice about when to be concerned and when to seek guidance from 111 or GP services.
