Scarlet Fever/Strep A

Attached please find a letter from the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) about the recent national increase in Scarlet Fever/Strep A notifications - it lists signs and symptoms, and advises what to do if you think your child might have either of these.


Please be reassured that we have had no reported cases at Oak Field, but we hope this information will be helpful to you.


If you are at all concerned about your child's health, please contact your GP or telephone NHS 111 as soon as possible
