Scarlet fever is a contagious infection that mostly affects young children. It's easily treated with antibiotics.
Check if you have scarlet fever
The first signs of scarlet fever can be flu-like symptoms, including a high temperature, a sore throat and swollen neck glands (a large lump on the side of your neck).
A rash appears 12 to 48 hours later. It looks looks like small, raised bumps and starts on the chest and tummy, then spreads. The rash makes your skin feel rough, like sandpaper.

HOW YOU ACCESS THE PRACTICE
Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, the way you access the Practic changed. We have safely resumed as many of our services as possible, but covid 19 is still around and in some areas cases are rising so we would ask you not to attend surgery unless its essential. If you do need to attend surgery please consider wearing a face covering to protect other patients in the waiting room. This is not mandatory, but a polite request.
We would ask you to continue to telephone the surgery if you wish to arrange a telephone review or face to face appointment. You can also contact us via eConsult, however these are closely monitored and temporarily suspended when we are at capacity.
Our Reception Team are trained in Care Navigation so will need to ask for a brief description of your problem to signpost you to the most appropriate person.The doctors ask our staff to do this.
If you arrange a telephone consultation, your Clinician will review your problem and will then, depending on your needs:-
Offer you advice via text
Offer a video call
Ask to see you in person (face to face) or
Navigate you to other services such as Pharmacy, Walk in Centre, Urgent Care
The surgery is open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 6.30 pm.The telephone lines open at 08:30am .If you have an urgent problem during these times please ring the surgery. At all other times ring NHS 111
