Domestic violence during COVID-19 Boots has partnered with the UK Says No More campaign to turn its consultation rooms into “safe spaces” for victims of domestic abuse, and other pharmacies can join the initiative. People who are experiencing domestic abuse during the COVID-19 pandemic can walk into any Boots branch in the UK from May 1st 2020 and ask the pharmacist if they can use the consultation room. Once inside the room, “all the specialist domestic abuse support information will be available” and if the person needs to contact a domestic abuse support service, they can “make that call safely”, according to the website set up for the campaign. The initiative is a partnership between Hestia – a charity offering support to victims of domestic abuse and modern slavery and those with mental health needs – and Boots. It issupported by the National Pharmacy Association (NPA), the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) and the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). To find your local Boots pharmacy, click here.

- Covid-19 Vaccination Programme | northenden-gp
COVID-19 vaccination update Please do not contact the practice to ask for a COVID-19 vaccination. You will be contacted when you are eligible. We have been asked by NHS England to start delivering the COVID-19 mass vaccination programme from 15 December. This will be done by working together with other local GP Practices (called a Primary Care Network) to provide the vaccines, rather doing vaccinations here at the practice. To enable everyone to get the vaccine in a safe and controlled way, a prioritisation list has been established so the vaccine can be delivered to groups who need it first. We will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about location and date, so please don't contact the practice to ask for a vaccine before then. We are working hard to plan the delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations, while continuing to deliver the largest ever flu vaccine campaign and supporting our patients with routine and urgent health requests. On that basis, we are unable to answer additional questions about the COVID vaccine. However, to help answer your likely questions, we have tried to summarise the key information you need to know about the upcoming COVID-19 vaccination campaign, along with sharing details of the way patient groups will be prioritised: The vaccine will be given in order of priority to those at highest risk first. We will be in contact with you with information about where and when you will need to receive the vaccine. Please act on your invite when it comes, and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them. Please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives. What are the priority groups? Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers All those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers All those 75 years of age and over All those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (excluding pregnant women and those under 16) All those 65 years of age and over All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality All those 60 years of age and over All those 55 years of age and over All those 50 years of age and over Rest of the population (priority to be determined) Click to see full screen COVID Vaccination Update As many of you are aware, GP practices are now commencing with the Covid-19 vaccination, to do this we are required by NHS England to deliver this in particular age groups, to deliver in batches of 975 vaccines at a time and also to deliver this vaccine from one site. This means we needs to work collaboratively with other local practices to deliver this as a group to our patient population. The other practices we are working with are all within the Wythenshawe area. Therefore, we will be providing vaccinations at a venue local to all. We are so very pleased that we are able to start with the over 80's last week and we will continue to work down the cohort lists. We are asking patients not to contact the practice regarding the Covid-19 vaccine as we will contact you soon via text message, telephone or by letter.

Manchester Local Care Organisation Neighbourhood neighbourhood working Manchester It's one of the 12 INTs in the city - each across an approximate population of 30-50,000 people. On a practical level INTs bring NHS community health and adult social care services together to improve how they work for people. Staff will be located together in the same building and can work together. That means that district nurses, social workers and other staff meet each day, carry out joint visits and discuss the best plan for people in their care. working As little as 10% of a population’s health and wellbeing is linked to access to Healthcare so the teams also work in the place they are based with other organisations (for example the police, council neighbourhood teams and housing), and importantly local community groups and people who live in the area to improve services. The neighbourhood team hold bimonthly Neighbourhood Partnership meetings and are committed to ensuring that plans, initiatives and solutions are genuinely co-produced, involving local residents, organisations and communities of interest.

- GP Patient Survey | northenden-gp
Around 2.3 million people, aged 16 and over, who are registered with a GP practice in England will receive an invitation to take part in Europe’s biggest patient experience survey in early January. As GP practices have had to make a number of changes over the last 12 months in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we hear about experiences of using local GP and health services. The invitations go out by letter to a sample of people from each of more than 6800 practices. Following a successful pilot, the survey team at NHS England and NHS Improvement are sending text message reminders to the whole sample (where a mobile number is recorded) alongside paper questionnaires. The data provides vital information to the NHS to identify what’s working well and what can be improved. It helps identify inequalities in experience too, such as for certain age or ethnic groups or people with other protected characteristics. It can also provide new information that does not come to light in other ways. Last year’s survey helped the NHS to learn more about the high proportion of people who have caring responsibilities and about how this affects their experiences of using health services.
