Strep A: What is it?


You might have heard about Strep A in the news or from your child’s school or nursery. It’s a type of bacteria (group A streptococcus) that usually causes a mild illness. However, in rare cases, it can lead to more severe or even life-threatening conditions.


While still uncommon, there is an increased number of Strep A cases compared to recent years and it’s important to look for the signs and minimise the spread where possible.
