FLU VACCINATIONS FOR CHILDREN 2019

We will invite all children aged 2 & 3 and those aged 6 months to 2 years and 11 to 18 years who are in an 'at risk' category for their flu vaccinations as soon as we can.  Unfortunately due to restrictions on supplies to General Practice, we are not able to order or obtain any vaccinations at the moment.  

Children aged 4 to 10 (in reception class and in school years 1 to 6) should be offered a vaccination via the school immunisation programme led by Virgincare.  

We apologise for the delay and will endeavour to rectify the situation as soon as we can.


ADULT FLU VACCINATIONS 2019

Flu season is upon us once again! Invitations have been sent to patients who qualify for a free vaccination this year according to NHS guidelines.

Initial invitations have been sent by letter, or email to those patients who have given us prior consent (please remember to check your junk/spam folder).

Our clinics will be held predominantly on Saturdays throughout September & October; with a limited number of alternative appointments available on weekdays for those patients who cannot attend on a Saturday .

If you have not yet booked (or declined) your free NHS flu vaccination, or if you feel you qualify for one but have not received an invite, please contact us on the main surgery number, or call in to our reception desk during opening hours. 

thank you

IMPROVED ACCESS TO PRIMARY CARE

This practice will be ensuring everyone has easier and more convenient access to GP services, including appointments at evenings and weekends. We will be working with a variety of health care providers in several locations, all registered with CQC to provide GP services. The GP practice where the patient is seen will take responsibility for the regulated activity delivered there, regardless of where the patient is registered.

Evening appointments Monday to Friday, are available at Salisbury Medical Practice and Saturday appointments are available at Three  Chequers Medical Practice, Three Swans site for blood tests,  HCA and Nurse appointments.

The LINK Scheme

Whiteparish and Landford LINK scheme.

 This voluntary scheme operates in the surrounding villages, providing door to door return journeys for residents who are unable to make normal travel arrangements. The service is mostly used in connection with medical appointments but also allows people the freedom of social visits and shopping excursions when needed.  The Whiteparish and Landford Community Link Scheme is run by volunteer.

To use the service please telephone a few days in advance. During the journey you will be invited to make a voluntary donation towards vehicle expenses for the round trip from the driver’s home. This will amount to approximately 40p per mile.

To use the LINK service please ring the duty co-ordinator on - Tel: 01794 884390

Volunteers.

The scheme is made possible entirely by volunteers and new recruits are always welcome.

If you feel that you can spare the time there are two ways of helping:

Drivers:

Drivers with their own vehicle receive requests from co-ordinators to provide transport for a client on a particular date and time. You will not have to make a regular commitment and will only receive requests when it is convenient for you.

Telephone Coordinators:

If you have a telephone at home and the time to spare you can help by acting as a coordinator, receiving calls from clients for assistance and locating available drivers.

Coordinators operate on a rotational basis, normally on call one week in six. When ‘on duty’ volunteers are expected to be contactable from 9am to 5pm either directly by telephone or by answerphone from Monday to Friday of that week
