#fluscenario Early flu in Mexico

28 Nov

This BBC Video clip about early response to swine flu in Mexico might give you some idea what it was like when swine flu started in Mexico – how do you think we were planning in the UK at the time?

Some questions for discussion:

1. Why should we be concerned about flu?
2. What is the role of a doctor/the NHS in planning for events like these?
3. Pandemic flu is being planned for at a national level. What could you be doing now to help you and your organisation if pandemic flu were to reach the UK?
4. What social media accounts, organisations or individuals would you trust? Would you be happy to discuss over social networks with other Health Care Professionals or would you prefer a closed forum? How would you ensure reliable information?
