FLU VACCINATIONS FOR CHILDREN 2019

We will invite all children aged 2 & 3 and also 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 there are restrictions on supplies to GP Surgeries, which means we are having to tightly manage the invitations and clinics according to delivery schedules.  

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.

Should you not wish your child to receive a flu vaccination this year, please let our admin team know.


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 and ask to speak to the admin team, 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.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Our next specialist talk will be held on October 2019 and will be on Prostate and Breast Cancer.  Keep an eye open for the date!

RECENT TALKS

On Wednesday May 8th  Whiteparish based volunteers Neil Orr and Deborah Martin from the First Responders of the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust gave a very interesting and interactive talk on First Aid for All.  They shared their expertise and experiences to illustrate how critical the role of the First Aider is – and that any one of us may be called on to help someone in need.

The WPPG and all in attendance thanked Neil and Deborah for their excellent presentation.

 The WPPG are currently seeking additional members, and if any patients are interested in joining they should enquire at the surgery reception or contact Gary Peacock at gapeacock54@gmail.com.

 

In April 2018, Dr Claire Page gave us a very informative talk on 'Falls and How to Prevent Them'.

Dr Page advised that keeping active and exercising, was the best way to improve your balance and strength - both key ingredients for preventing falls.  Indeed, she had us on our feet and trying some of these exercises! 

Please see below for a copy of the 6 exercises that she recommended.  A paper copy of these is available at the surgery too.
