CORONAVIRUS

There are now confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the UK.

Please look at the attached poster if you are at all concerned and more importantly, follow the advice given:

ADVICE ABOUT CORONAVIRUS

INFLUENZA

Flu season is well and truly upon us once again. There has been a CONSIDERABLE rise in the number of patients with 'flu.

Please see information here about what to do if you think you may have flu.

What to do about 'flu

Government information tells us that the flu' vaccination this year is a good match to the strain of 'flu that is circulating.  If you have not yet had your free NHS flu vaccination, please call the main surgery number and book an appointment as soon as possible, in order to avoid this potentially dangerous illness.

Thank you

Who should have a flu jab?



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.

BREXIT

The government is working closely with the NHS and suppliers to help to ensure medicines and medical products continue to be available for patients if there is a ‘no deal’ Brexit.

Get prescriptions as normal

Please keep ordering your repeat prescriptions and taking your medicines as normal. It is unnecessary to change how you order and take your medicines.

It's important you don't ask for more medicines than you normally need, doing so risks pressure on availability of medicines for other people.

What the goverment is doing

The government has put in place contingency measures to help ensure medicines continue to be available. These include:

Buffer stocks in the UK

The government has recommended that pharmaceutical wholesalers build up at least 6 weeks' extra stocks above their usual buffer stock levels in preparation for Brexit on 31 October 2019. It has secured additional warehouse capacity for the stockpiled medicines. These stocks will continue to be replenished when used.

The surgery has been advised NOT to stock pile medicines, as this will not be necessary.  It is therefore not helpful or appropriate for anyone to create their own personal supply of medicines at home as this risks pressure on the practice being able to supply medicines to everyone.
