Flu season is upon us once again! Invitations are being sent now to patients who qualify for a free vaccination this year according to NHS guidelines.

Initial invitations are being 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 .

Call 01794 885275, weekdays, between 10 am & 4 pm Tuesday 17th September until Monday 23rd September to book your appointment, or if you feel you qualify for a free vaccination but have not received an invite.

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.

A repeat prescription allows you to reorder your medication a certain number of times before having to see a Doctor or a Nurse to have it reviewed. However, you still need to be monitored to ensure that the medication is still suitable for you and the Doctor or Nurse can monitor how you are getting on.

How do I know when I am due a review? 

Each medicine listed on your prescription will tell you the following;

  • The name of the medicine
  • Its strength and how to take it
  • When the medicine was last ordered and,
  • How many more times you can order it before you need to see the doctor for a review.

 

If you can see - please see GP to order more -  this is when you will need a review. One of our Dispensers will sit with you when you come to collect your medication and ask you some brief questions about your medication and your management of them. This will then be passed on to your Doctor or Nurse who can reauthorise your medications, or who will contact should they feel it necessary.

If your review date has expired, a dispenser will tell you how to obtain a further prescription. This may involve making an appointment. If you need your medication before that appointment please tell the dispenser and they will organise what to do next. 

We have a community Pharmacist who is available to discuss your medication queries or undertake medication reviews on a Thursday morning.
