Noticeboard

Anyone attending the surgery must now wear a covering over their nose & mouth; whether it be to attend an appointment, collect a prescription, or accompany someone they care for.

Please do not arrive EARLY for your appointment.  In accordance with current social distancing guidelines, we are not permitting patients to wait inside the building. You may be asked to return to your vehicle and wait for your clinician to become available.  Please therefore be mindful of the weather conditions when setting out and come prepared.

We would like to thank you all for your understanding and support during these challenging times.  We continue to do our upmost to ensure we offer high standard healthcare in a manner that is safe for both patients and our dedicated staff. 

Receptionists required!  See our Staff Vacancies page for further info...

Flu Vaccinations Autumn/Winter 2020

We are busy planning for the flu season.

Due to Covid-19 we will be running our flu clinics slightly differently this year, with enhanced safety measures and social distancing, to minimise the risk to both your health and ours.

Our first vaccine delivery for the over 65 age group is scheduled to arrive mid-September and we will commence clinics, primarily on Saturdays, from 26th September.

All clinics will be by appointment only, managed by a bookings team via a dedicated telephone line, separate to our main surgery number.  Please try to avoid contacting our reception team to book your flu vaccination; bear in mind they are trying to deal with patients who require medical assistance and also they may not have access to the flu clinic appointment schedules.

We are anticipating a higher than usual demand for vaccinations this year and so we must try to ensure that patients in the highest risk groups are invited and vaccinated first.  Please, therefore, do not contact us until you receive an invitation to do so.  We will be sending invitations via email and/or text message to those patients who have given us permission to do so.  For those who haven't, a letter will be sent via Royal Mail.

Those patients aged 50 to 64 who are included in the new extended flu vaccination programme will be contacted later in the season after the higher risk groups have been vaccinated.

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.
