Measles outbreak: what to do
A measles outbreak in Wales is a reminder of the importance of MMR vaccination. It’s never too late to get your children (or yourself) vaccinated against this dangerous illness.
If your children haven’t yet had the MMR vaccination, don’t delay. There have been over 800 confirmed cases of measles in Swansea and the outbreak shows no sign of slowing down.

HAGA Service Introduced to Hornsey Central
A new HAGA service has now been introduced at Hornsey Central on Wednesday evenings
from 17:00 - 20:00. They are hour long appointments and patients can be referred
by the GP or self-refer themselves.
"You will have an appointment with a skilled worker to talk about your current concerns
and to work out a plan to improve your lifestyle. HAGA has different services to
meet people's needs. We can't "cure" you or wave a magic wand but we can help you
make positive changes to your drinking if you choose to. How you do that will be
for you to decide. Some people choose to stop drinking altogether, while others
choose to cut down their drinking."
