Noticeboard

For your safety & ours, we must insist that you do not come to the surgery to make routine enquiries, please call us instead.

Anyone approaching or entering the surgery building must wear a covering over their nose & mouth; whether it be to attend an appointment, collect a prescription, or to act as a chaperone.

Please do not arrive EARLY for your appointment as we are not able to permit 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.

If you find yourself in a queue outside the building, please remember to observe the 2 metre distancing rule.

We would like to thank you for your continued understanding and support during these challenging times.  However, we are very sad to report that our staff have recently been receiving an increasing amount of verbal hostility, both from telephone and face-to-face encounters with patients and their families.  We operate a zero tolerance policy and will not condone abuse of our staff and partners in any form.  The Whiteparish Surgery team work very hard to provide the best service possible in, what are often, very difficult circumstances and we have been disheartened by recent events.  PLEASE BE KIND.

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
