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.

Blood Tests

Blood test forms are provided by Whiteparish Surgery if you wish to attend Salisbury Hosptial for routine blood test.

Whiteparish Surgery offer a  number of blood test appointments for patients registered with the Practice for those unable to attend the hospital.  We have a phlebotomist on a Tuesday and Friday: appointments are only available during the morning because the samples are collected at lunchtime to go to the hospital for processing.

If you have been requested to have a 'fasting' blood test, this means that you need to have only water to drink from the evening meal before your appointment, until after your blood test. You can continue taking any medications as normal during this period.

If you take insulin, you do not need to be fasting.

 


Getting Your Results  

Blood Test results will be available from Reception 7 days after your appointment. You can telephone Reception between 10:00am and 3:00pm  Monday to Friday and our Reception Team will be able to provide you with your results. Where applicable they will advise you if an appointment with the GP is required.
