The GP unit at a Perthshire hospital is closed due to an outbreak of flu, it’s been disclosed.

NHS Tayside has revealed the facility at Blairgowrie Community Hospital is currently closed to new admissions because of a “small number” of patients who have the flu bug.

A spokesperson for NHS Tayside said: “To help reduce the spread of infection, people are asked to avoid visiting if possible and visitors who have coughs and colds which could be flu are asked not to visit friends and relatives until they are better.”
