Monkeypox

There has recently been an increase in monkeypox cases within the UK, however the risk of catching it remains low. Monkeypox can affect anyone; however the majority of monkeypox cases in the UK continue to be in gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM), with the infection being passed on mainly through close contact between people in interconnected sexual networks. Therefore, these groups in particular are advised to be aware of the symptoms, especially any new rashes or lesions on any part of their body. If you have symptoms of monkeypox please contact a sexual health service or call NHS 111. For more information, please visit nhs.uk.
