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.

Carers

If you are a carer, looking after a family member or neighbour and you are registered at Whiteparish surgery, please let us know about your caring role, so that we can support you in your caring role.  Please contact Reception for details.

THE NEXT CARERS' COFFEE MORNING - WILL BE ON SATURDAY 16TH NOVEMBER 9.30 - 11.30. THIS WILL BE HELD IN THE COWESFIELD ROOM IN WHITEPARISH MEMORIAL HALL. 

We will be delighted to see you at our coffee mornings- please let a member of reception staff know if you would like to come or ask if you would like further information.

A new updated guide for care and support in Wiltshire is now available at this link. The Wiltshire Adult Care and Support guide, published by Care Choices gives readers information on how to access and pay for care services throughout Wiltshire .

If you help someone with their day to day living please let yourself be known to us and we will register you as a carer. We can then, if you wish, register you with the Carers groups either in Wiltshire or Hampshire. They can  assist you with any problems that may occur in your caring role.

At the Surgery we hold regular Coffee Mornings quarterly on a Saturday, which are very well attended and are a fantastic way to share your experiences with other carers and to obtain useful information from our invited guests.

As a carer you will be offered a yearly flu jab. We also hold regular carers health checks so we can help you to stay well, with the opportunity to speak to a Care Worker one-to-one after the appointment with the nurse.

There are many advantages in registering as a carer. For further information please ask to speak to Kim Munro - Carers Lead 


There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
