Swine flu hotline to ease pressure on GPs

17th July 2009

England's Chief Medical Officer Sir Liam Donaldson has confirmed that a swine flu phone line will be available soon to lessen the demands on GP practices.

The helpline is to be launched soon and will allow staff to decide which patients need medication by using a clinical algorithm. The Health Protection Agency said 29 people had now died from the virus and the number of cases of swine flu stood at 55,000.
