swine flu

National Pandemic Flu Service
The National Pandemic Flu Service was launched in England, in July last year, to provide assessment and treatment for people suffering from swine flu.

With the number of swine flu cases now falling, the service will stop offering assessments at 1 am on 11 February 2010.

If, after this time, you think you have swine flu symptoms, you should stay at home and contact your GP. They will be able to assess you and prescribe antivirals if you need them.

Your GP will also be able to advise you on vaccination.

For more information on swine flu, follow the links below or call the Swine Flu Information Line on 0800 1 513 513.

Due to Pandemic H1N1 Influenza (formerly known as Swine Flu) and concerns about the 2009/2010 flu season, the EBSCO Publishing Medical and Nursing editors of DynaMed™, Nursing Reference Center™ (NRC) and Patient Education Reference Center™ (PERC) have made key influenza information from these resources freely available to health care providers worldwide. The information is designed to inform patients and their families and provide information to clinicians to help them with H1N1 diagnosis and H1N1 treatment by making up-to-date diagnosis and treatment information available. The resources being made available will also provide up-to-date information about the H1N1 vaccine
