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.


COVID-19 & VACCINATIONS

Please see 'COVID 19' within Further Information section on the right hand side of the screen for the latest information with regards to vaccinations and advice.

Flu Vaccinations Winter 2020/21

We still have some flu vaccines left in stock.  If you would like a vaccination and have not yet responded to your invitation, have changed your mind, or feel that you qualify and did not receive an invite, please call our Flu Line: 01794 885275, Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm.

 

COVID 19

IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT THAT IF YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE COVID-19, YOU DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY.  PLEASE SELF-ISOLATE AND GO TO THE NHS 111 ONLINE SERVICE.

TELEPHONE 111 IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SELF-ISOLATED AND ARE FEELING WORSE.

Covid-19 Vaccination

Please do not contact our main telephone line to make routine enquiries about a Covid-19 Vaccination - it is putting extreme pressure on our telephone system and preventing patients that require medical assistance from getting through.

We understand that this is a very anxious time for everybody, but please be assured that invites for our oldest and most vulnerable patients, have begun in accordance with NHS priority guidelines. We appreciate your continued patience whilst vaccine supplies in the Sarum South area begin to arrive.  

From 15th February, all patients over the age of 65 will be invited by the NHS to book a vaccine at one of the national vaccination centres or local participating pharmacies.  If you are in this age group and have not yet received an invite, you can call our vaccination line on 01794 885275, Monday to Friday between 9 & 4 and our admin team will do their best to help you.

If any of our patients are frontline healthcare workers and feel they qualify for a priority vaccine, please email us at: surgery.whiteparish@nhs.net so that we may update your records accordingly. We may request proof of employment, so please provide details when you send your email.
