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.
