Journal Focus: Reflections on Swine Flu

With efforts focussing once again on the influenza pandemic, I found this article from a GP team in rural Scotland interesting. Back in June 2009, our colleagues in Cowal & Bute discovered that they would soon be one of the early hotspots of the swine flu outbreak.

In their article “Major incidents in rural areas: managing a pandemic A/H1N1/2009 cluster” which features in Rural & Remote Health, Stark et al describe the nature of the response, and detail the challenges faced from a rural perspective.
