The hospital asks local people to please follow this advice rather than coming to the A&E Department and adds if you have flu-like symptoms, or if you are concerned you have been in contact with someone who has flu, please do not visit your family and friends at the hospital. Please stay at home and limit your contact with others.
Chelsea and Westminster has also produced an information leaflet about seasonal flu.
