In line with current Government guidance patients are required to continue to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings.
Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so – unless exempt – is key to preventing spread of infection.
If you have symptoms you must get at PCR test as soon as possible & before visiting your GP. Rapid lateral flow tests should not be used to confirm infection.
It’s vital that you and anyone in your household isolate until you receive your test result, and for 10 days thereafter if the result is positive.
Drive-through flu vaccination clinics are being run:
Patients over 65 and older should have received invites to attend for either Sunday 19th or 26th September, or if you cannot attend then Sunday 3rd October from 10am to 12 noon.
Patients in the 40 to 64 ‘At Risk’ cohort should have received invites to attend on Sunday 3rd October.
Patients in the 18 to 39 ‘At Risk’ cohort will be contacted when further vaccines are available.
Patients under 18 At Risk and children of 2 to 3 years old will be invited to separate nurse led clinics.
Patients in the 50 to 64 cohort, who have no underlying health conditions, will be contacted when further vaccines are available.

A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.
Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems, will still get one but, where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled.
Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.
If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
Further information regarding the national blood bottle shortage can be found on this Somerset Commissioning Group website page.
