FLU VACCINATIONS 2019

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

Initial invitations are being 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 .

Call 01794 885275, weekdays, between 10 am & 4 pm Tuesday 17th September until Monday 23rd September to book your appointment, or if you feel you qualify for a free vaccination but have not received an invite.

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.

BREXIT

The government is working closely with the NHS and suppliers to help to ensure medicines and medical products continue to be available for patients if there is a ‘no deal’ Brexit.

Get prescriptions as normal

Please keep ordering your repeat prescriptions and taking your medicines as normal. It is unnecessary to change how you order and take your medicines.

It's important you don't ask for more medicines than you normally need, doing so risks pressure on availability of medicines for other people.

What the goverment is doing

The government has put in place contingency measures to help ensure medicines continue to be available. These include:

Buffer stocks in the UK

The government has recommended that suppliers of medicines build up at least 6 weeks' extra stocks above their usual buffer stock levels in preparation for Brexit on 31 October 2019. It has secured additional warehouse capacity for the stockpiled medicines. These stocks will continue to be replenished when used.

It is not helpful or appropriate for anyone to create their own personal supply of medicines at home as this risks pressure on availability of medicines.
