Swine Flu Update

swine fluThe government says the UK has moved from the ‘containment’ to the ‘treatment’ phase of Swine flu as the number of people catching swine flu continues to rise.  The Fawkes family are in London for another fortnight, before we head for France.  4 year-old Miss Fawkes is in day two of displaying possible Swine flu symptoms: high temperatures, tummy ache, headaches and a dry cough.

Last night a worried mother took Miss Fawkes (who had a temperature of 39.1 C / 102.3 F) to the paediatric A & E unit of a London hospital where she was given a mask and told to go instead to a walk-in unit.  The walk-in unit told her there was a four hour wait and that she might as well go home and see her GP.  This morning the GP’s receptionist said that they could not have a suspected case of Swine flu in the waiting room and she was to go home.

So in the last 48 hours we have been unable either to get our daughter tested, which is causing anxiety, or obtain a prescription for anti-viral drugs.  Bear in mind we have a two year-old daughter as well.  We are now trying to get a private prescription…
