Cervical screening coverage in England has fallen again and is now at just 71.4%. It is now at a 21 year low.

Down from 72% in 2017 and 73.7% in 2011. Of the 4.46 million women invited in 2017-2018, 3.18 million were tested meaning 1.28 million women did not take up their invitation. Book yours today!

SEPSIS AWARENESS : 

Sepsis, also referred to as blood poisoning or septicaemia, is a potentially life-threatening condition triggered by an infection or injury which causes the body’s immune system to go into overdrive. If it is treated quickly, most patients will have a full recovery with no lasting health issues, but if not treated it can lead to septic shock, loss of limbs, organ failure and even death. Studies indicate that one in three people with sepsis will die; the condition kills more people than breast, bowel and prostate cancer combined.

For further information please view the website for the Sepsis Trust : https://sepsistrust.org/

Routine Immunisations for young people - Vaccination Programme for 2019/20

 

The adolescent vaccination programme now entitles young people to MenACWY and TdIPV (formerly known as the school leaver booster).

 

Pupils in the current school year 10 will have received this vaccination at school in Spring 2018. The school will need to make arrangements for any pupils missing this provision.

Pupils in the current school year 9 (2019-20) will receive MenACWY and TdIPV at school in Spring 2019. Again, it is the school's responsibility to follow up any pupils missing this provision.  

Please click here for more information on NHS Immunisations for Young People.

 

If you have not had these vaccinations or are unsure whether you have, please contact the surgery.

If you are about to go off to University, it is particularly important that you receive this before you go.

We are also keen to offer immunisations to pupils currently in Year 11 and above who may not have received the necessary immunisations at school in the past as this is a new provision in schools.

Please check your MMR status as the only effective way to protect against measles is to have two doses of the MMR vaccine. You may have missed the vaccination program when you were younger (first at 12 months and second at 3 years and 4 months). MMR information from NHS Choices

We are supporting the Get Hampshire Walking campaign, which aims to spread the word about the benefits of walking to help patients lead healthier and more active lives.

It's not difficult - a few extra steps, using the stairs and not the lift, getting off the bus a stop early, leaving the car at home for short journeys will all help.

Walking can also help you get out more, meet new people and improve your social life.

Community Phlebotomy Service

Following extensive patient consultation over the past two years, West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group (WHCCG) is pleased to announce the launch of a new community phlebotomy (blood taking) service from 1 January 2015

Why are we changing phlebotomy services?

The CCG received a number of complaints from people who had experienced difficulty in having their blood taken locally when they needed tests carrying out. The commissioning team responsible for planning health services like blood tests carried out a range of surveys online, in GP surgeries and in hospitals to ask what the problems were and how and where people would like to have their blood taken.

The overwhelming result was that people want to have their blood taken in a timely manner as close to home as possible, at a time that is convenient to them, including evenings and weekends.

How did we identify new service providers?

WHCCG developed a service specification that reflected these findings and it was advertised for tender by interested parties earlier in the year.  Following a rigorous procurement process contracts have now been awarded to five providers covering the CCG catchment area and these contracts will take effect from January 2015.

Who is my new service provider?

In your area the phlebotomy service provider will be: A member practice of Mid Hampshire Healthcare

The new service will offer blood tests at local GP surgeries, with a rota of surgeries providing appointments in the early morning, evenings and Saturday mornings.

How do I contact them?

To contact your local service please phone your GP Practice, ask at reception or visit www.midhampshirehealthcare.co.uk.

You will still contact your own GP to get the results and for any further appointments.

We hope that this will meant that everyone can have their blood taken near to where they live, at a time that suits them, without having to wait a long time for an appointment
