Acute Respiratory Illness Hubs Have Launched




NHS England is funding the establishment of Acute Respiratory Illness (ARI) hubs over winter to help manage pressures, including the recent rise in Strep A prevalence.

These hubs operate outside of typical GP hours and are set up so that people with respiratory conditions can receive the treatment they need without having to go to A&E.
