Hi guys work in an emergency planning office

NHS direct 1st 08454647

Department of health 08001513513

suggest you dont go direct to Drs or Hospital they take a dim view
of potential hazards walking through the door.

NHS direct are fully up to spec for all aspects of swine flu

hope everyone who has it/had it are OK

Thank you so very much everyone .

Since i wrote this thread,i went to the school office to speak to the HeadMistress,she understands how i feel-mainly for my minor helath issues.She also told me that there are 6 children awaiting test results .The school will not be closing-as that is not happening with any schools now.She also said that there is one child awaiting results in my Dd4 Nursery/School.
I asked for her opinion+she recommended i keep Dd4 off school-as she is under 5,but said that there is no real reason to keep Dd8 off .

I have since spoke to NHS Direct they have advised me to send the girls to school .NHS did say though that with my chest,asthma i 'could' get it bad ,if i was to get it.

I have decided i am NOT sending my girls to school,i don't want to take the risk,i can't afford to.
I know i could or my girls can get it from going to Asda,but i am none the wiser there,but being as though there is a confirmed case,i am not taking a chance-hope that makes sense.

As for my friends boy who got sent home,he no longer has a temperature,shakes+shivers,but does have a runny nose,sore throat+cough.The NHS told her that if his symptoms rapidly get worse overnight she must phone them back.

Thanks again everyone.x.

We have had a letter from school today to advise what the NHS have advised them of symptoms to look out for and to wash hands use a tissue etc.
They havent said there are any cases within the school tho, its pretty scary
My cousin & her son have been diagnosed with it

We have had confirmed cases here in Burton and there are rumours its at my sons school, one is at home on GCSE study leave (but went on a school trip to Drayton Manor yesterday)the other is year 8 and is in school as normal. I wouldn't normally worry but we are going away next week and don't want to be laid low over there! One had asthma as a youngster but doesn't seem to have suffered for a few years now and the other had a heart op at birth so I don't know if they are classed at risk or not.

We have 7 cases in my office now. I suffer from asthma too, so I understand your concerns - whenever I get a cold it always seems to make my asthma worse.

I hope your cousin+her son are well-have they been given the Tamiflu or have they been told to stay at home+take paracetamol etc?.x.

I have been told that high risk people are--Asthmatics,Heart+Kidney,Lung problems,Under 5's,Over 65's,Epilepsy,Pregnant.I personally would say yes,that your children would be classed as at risk(but only by what i have been told).Like i did i would say if you can take them out of school.x.

I am the same-as i have Mild Asthma,also i can't just get a normal cold(i have to be different )-i end up really rough,99% of the time i end up with a chest infection,and in some cases i am told that it has gone to my lungs-this is why one of the reasons i cannot afford to get it .
I hope you manage to stay well .x.

Somehow I missed this thread??

I don't blame you Michelle, it's the end of term so the girls aren't going to miss that much other than some fun stuff. It's better to be safe than sorry. x

Just catching up.

Ignore what all the other Mums say - lets face it - "some" Mum's & school gates not a good combination!

A friend once told me - "If you don't fight for your children and do what's right for them who else will?" and I've never forgotten this.

At the end of the day what has it got to do with anybody else?"

I hope you all keep well and don't be too hard on them with school work - my DDs' were watching the Bolt DVD at school yesterday!

We were just talking about this at our toddler group this morning as we have a confirmed case at one of the primary schools in town (we live in a village) and my friend is a ped nurse and the incubation period can be upto 3 weeks for swine flu.

I think you need to do whats right for your family and if that means keeping your children home then thats fine.

I wouldn't taken any chances if you have any one that falls into an at risk group.

Hi Michelle. I would do the exact same thing as you.

As far as i know my DD's pre-school havent had any confirmed cases (if they have we havent been informed) but i know that if there was even one and this includes in the main school, Kyra would not be going in period. I would rather us sit at home like hermits for however many days then to risk getting sick.

I think you did the right thing Michelle
