The UK Health Security Agency has issued a safety message: Immediate Actions In Response To Cases Of Monkeypox Virus In The UK With No Known Travel History. This safety message contains immediate actions for the NHS following seven confirmed cases of monkeypox virus. The actions are:

1. Providers to ensure that they have appropriate PPE for the assessment and treatment of patients presenting with possible monkeypox virus.

2. Services should consider a differential diagnosis of monkeypox virus in any patient who meets the case definitions in the alert.

3. Inform local IPC teams and infectious disease/microbiology/virology consultants if a diagnosis of monkeypox virus is being considered so that appropriate testing and infection control measures can be implemented.
