St Bart’s is monitoring the situation carefully and we have been in liaison with West Berkshire Council. We urge everyone to follow the advice which is now readily available. There are various useful websites with information. These are: NHS Direct http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk World Health Organisation http://www.who.int/csr/disease/avian_influenza/phase/en/index.html Health Protection Agency http://www.hpa.org.uk Foreign & Commonwealth Office re travel http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/ UK Resilience http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/ukresilience/pandemicflu/whats_new.aspx Teachers http://www.teachernet.gov.uk/emergencies/planning/flupandemic/index.html We are planning to update parents via the school website as frequently as the situation requires. Please inform us immediately if you or member of your family develop the swine flu.
