Monkeypox is a viral infection usually associated with travel to West Africa. It is usually a mild self-limiting illness, spread by very close contact with someone with monkeypox and most people recover within a few weeks.
The virus can spread if there is close contact between people and the risk to the UK population is low. However, recent cases are predominantly in gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, and as the virus spreads through close contact, the UK Health Security Agency is advising these groups in particular to be alert to any symptoms of monkeypox, and to contact a sexual health service if they have concerns.

High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
