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.

The LINK Scheme

Whiteparish and Landford LINK scheme.

 This voluntary scheme operates in the surrounding villages, providing door to door return journeys for residents who are unable to make normal travel arrangements. The service is mostly used in connection with medical appointments but also allows people the freedom of social visits and shopping excursions when needed.  The Whiteparish and Landford Community Link Scheme is run by volunteer.

To use the service please telephone a few days in advance. During the journey you will be invited to make a voluntary donation towards vehicle expenses for the round trip from the driver’s home. This will amount to approximately 40p per mile.

To use the LINK service please ring the duty co-ordinator on - Tel: 01794 884390

Volunteers.

The scheme is made possible entirely by volunteers and new recruits are always welcome.

If you feel that you can spare the time there are two ways of helping:

Drivers:

Drivers with their own vehicle receive requests from co-ordinators to provide transport for a client on a particular date and time. You will not have to make a regular commitment and will only receive requests when it is convenient for you.

Telephone Coordinators:

If you have a telephone at home and the time to spare you can help by acting as a coordinator, receiving calls from clients for assistance and locating available drivers.

Coordinators operate on a rotational basis, normally on call one week in six. When ‘on duty’ volunteers are expected to be contactable from 9am to 5pm either directly by telephone or by answerphone from Monday to Friday of that week
