Think it’s measles? Phone first before visiting your GP
As Nelson Marlborough continues to hold onto its measles-free status – one of only four DHB areas in this position – the region’s primary health organisations are urging people to phone their GP practice or Healthline first before bringing measles symptoms into a clinic waiting room.
The Health Care Home initiative is now well established across the Top of the South, with the first five Tranche One practices now into their 4th month of implementation against their year one implementation plans.
In June 2019, we will be calling for expressions of interest from practices across Nelson Bays and Marlborough who would like to be considered for one of the eight places available for the next 2019-20 financial year commencing in July 2019.
There is Measles outbreak in countries globally, several cases have appeared in New Zealand and potentially a huge threat. Measles is a highly infectious disease that is easily spread from an infected person by saliva or mucous droplets when coughing, sneezing or talking. Just being in the same room as someone with measles can lead to infection if you are not immunised.
