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.

Why does it take 2 working days to process a prescription? 

With so many people taking medication Whiteparish Surgery deals with over 2200 requests every week. Each request has to be checked against the patient's records to ensure that it is legitimate and appropriate. When this has been confirmed the prescription is printed and the drugs prepared, checked and labelled.  

 

Many requests generate queries or problems that only a doctor can sort out. To do this job efficiently takes about 48 hours. Of course, in an emergency we can produce a prescription quickly, but the disruption it causes to the smooth running of things only causes more delay for other patients. 

 

Please note that your consumption of medication is checked regularly and inconsistencies will be discussed with you. We normally issue sufficient medicines for a month.
