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.

Contraception

At Whiteparish we offer a full range of contraceptive services, these include;

  • Contraceptive Pills
  • Coils
  • Implants
  • Condoms

Routine appointments are available for contraceptive pills and where applicable can be entered as a repeat prescription which can be ordered online.

Clinics for coil fittings are on a Tuesday afternoon and can be arranged via a telephone consultation with Louise Otter and fittings are undertaken by RaeDaraklitsas,  our specialist in Contraception and Womens Health.

Implant fitting and removals are arranged through Louise Otter too: please make a telephone appointment with her via Reception.

 


 Cervical Smears

All women are invited to have a cervical smear at least every five years (3-yearly for 24-49 years, 5-yearly for 50-65 years). You will be invited automatically when you are due your smear test from the Health Authority. This test can be arranged with the Practice Nurse, Nurse Practitioner or Female Doctor. The practice will send a reminder when your smear is overdue. Should you not wish to attend a form available from reception to decline the invitation.
