Increase in presentation of flu-like illness

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) released a weekly pandemic update earlier this week that shows increasing levels of individuals presenting with flu-like illness in primary care settings.

Individual clinicians and healthcare provider organisations are likely to be responding to demand and activating pandemic influenza plans. The HPA also notes that the vast majority of cases are mild with the 5-14 year old age group being predominantly affected.

Action: Clinicians are likely to be very busy coping with demand. Prescriber.org.uk will be operating at a restricted level in the coming weeks, normal service will resume once demand abates.
