We are aware of increasing numbers of cases of Monkeypox present in the UK population.

If you have a sexual health concern AND have any of the following symptoms, please call our central booking line (see above for Bank Holiday opening times) on 01904 721111 and one of our team will be able to get you the help you need.

  • Rash on any part of your body
  • Fever
  • New lump/s in neck, groin or under your arm

AND

  2. Have you had contact with someone with confirmed Monkeypox in the 21 days before symptom onset?
  3. Have you travelled to West and Central Africa, in the 21 days before symptoms onset

In the event you answer yes to any of the above please stay at home and isolate and call NHS 111 or your local sexual health services.

Things I can do to relieve symptoms of suspected Monkeypox virus

  • Take regular paracetamol if safe to do so (do not exceed recommended dosage)
  • Keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water
  • Keep any blisters or sores clean and covered with light cotton clothing or dressing if appropriate
  • Where possible self isolate away from household contacts and pets
