Public Health in England – A frontline trainee viewpoint Dr. Sylvia Garry:  
I have been a junior doctor for 10 years. Well, 10 years minus 3 months, but by this point, who’s counting? ...Last year I made the switch from being a Paediatric registrar, to starting Public Health training. I switched because I wanted to work towards preventing problems before they occurred. I had the somewhat idealistic and unrealistic view that inequality can be resolved with a little innovation and elbow grease.

Short message on measles by Dr. Kirsty LeDoare, Paediatric Infectious Diseases Consultant, Evelina London
Measles is an acute viral illness that is highly contagious and can have long-lasting consequences for some survivors. The number of measles cases in the UK has risen drastically since 2014 and several outbreaks have been declared. It is vital that all health care professionals recognise the signs and symptoms of measles early to monitor and treat those children in need and identify those at risk. Catching measles early benefits the individual child and from a public health viewpoint protects pregnant women, newborns and the immunocompromised who can be the most affected by this vaccine-preventable disease.
