Pandemic Flu Service closed

The NHS Pandemic Flu Service has been closed in response to the decline in swine flu cases. The closure of the service has been reported in the general media (BBC).

The telephone service and web based assessment tool have both been suspended but could be reinstated within seven days if needed. Patients who suspect that they have flu-like symptoms are now being directed to their own doctor for assessment and treatment authorisation.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of the closure of this service and that responsibility for assessment and treatment has been transferred back to primary care services.
