Just wondered.

for swine flu queries call NHSdirect as usual or the flu line when it is up and running - then if advised to contact your GP you would contact a GP surgery local to the area you are staying at and ask to be seen as a 'temporary resident'(or call the local OOH depending on the time of day/weekend).

You can always ask to be seen by a local GP if you are on holiday or staying temporarily away from your own home and develop a new problem.

Ah right-o thanks so much DD that's good advice. Like everyone, I'm hoping it doesn't appear on holiday.

5 of us in a tent with SF doesn't sound like a happy situation. Dh says I'm always 'glass half empty'blush But I like to be prepared.

I'll check out a few tel nos before we go.
