Information 4 9 2019

Dear all,

Some information for you. A number of weeks ago one of our group members was diagnosed as having scabies, they were promptly treated and were declared as being clear of it.

It’s been brought to our attention that another member of Sporting Challenge has been diagnosed with scabies and has seen a GP today.

The NHS website says that scabies is not usually a serious condition, but it does need to be treated.

Attached is a link to the NHS website-

We have spoken to NHS 111 and they agreed that we should advise everyone of the occurrence.

If you have questions please ask your local pharmacy and or doctor.


Best wishes,


Edward J McCarthy.

Sporting Challenge Activities Organiser.


Alasdair Watson.

Chairman of Sporting Challenge.
