Don’t bring flu into hospital

Flu kills
Influenza (flu) is contagious and largely preventable. If you have symptoms of flu do not go to A&E or visit family and friends in hospital - you could pass it on to someone else.

Recognise it

The symptoms of flu include:

  • Sudden fever
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue


Contain it

If you have these symptoms:

  • Do not attend A&E or visit family and friends in the hospital
  • Contact 111 or your GP for further advice
  • If you are otherwise fit and healthy there is usually no reason to visit your GP
  • The best remedy is to stay home, keep warm and drink plenty of water
  • You can take over the counter remedies to lower temperature and relieve aches
  • You should visit your GP if you are over 65, pregnant, have underlying medical conditions or a weakened immune system

Remember

  • Catch it - Use a tissue for coughs and sneezes
  • Bin it - As soon as you can
  • Kill it - Wash your hands with soap and water

To enable us to provide safe care, from 12noon on Thursday 5 November we temporarily transferred all births and obstetric inpatient services from the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch to Worcestershire Royal Hospital. 

All antenatal clinic and day assessment appointments will continue in the same venue.
