Walk in Urine samples Coffee with Mates Online Appointments Cheshire and Merseyside residents urged to ‘give digital a go’ as part of new NHS campaign How you make a complaint about primary care services is changing on 1 July 2023 Carers Week 2023 Hypertension day – 17 May 2023 Coffee with Mates dates May – July ’23 Vaccination reminder in World Immunisation Week (24-30 April) Test of Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system at 3pm on Sunday 23rd April
Anyone in Liverpool who is eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine, but who hasn’t booked their first dose yet, is being asked to make an appointment as soon as possible.
Members of the public can have the vaccine now if any of the following apply:
Groups of Liverpool GP practices are working together to invite patients to a network of local vaccination sites across the city. Eligible people will automatically be contacted by text, phone or letter – they don’t need to phone their own GP to request the vaccine.
Alternatively, those who have received a letter or text message inviting them to access the national booking system, can use the link provided to them or call 119 to choose a slot at one of a number of sites across the region.
All vaccinations are by appointment only – no drop-ins are available.
People are asked not to make multiple appointments at different sites, and cancel any appointments they can no longer attend, so that they can be used by someone else.
Those who will be due to have a second dose of the vaccine soon are being encouraged to make sure they attend their appointment. The latest guidance is that a second dose should be given between 77 and 84 days (11 to 12 weeks) after the first. People who booked their first dose through the national booking system and/or received their first dose at the regional vaccination centre, or at a local pharmacy or hospital, should have been offered a second vaccination appointment when they booked or received their first dose. If they didn’t, they can go online and book this now.
People who received their first dose at a local GP-led site will be contacted around a week and a half before their second dose is due and asked to make an appointment. This process is in place to make sure that the appointments offered to patients at GP-led sites match up with vaccine availability.
Anyone in Liverpool already identified as a carer in their GP records; those who receive Carer’s Allowance; or those known to Liverpool City Council or Liverpool Carers Centre Local Solutions, will be automatically invited for a Covid-19 vaccination. Anyone who thinks they might be eligible to receive a vaccine as a carer, but who doesn’t receive Carer’s Allowance or have their status recorded with any of these organisations, should contact the Liverpool Carers Centre. This includes carers aged 16 – 18, as well as adult carers. They can do this either by calling: 07545652775, or by emailing: email@example.com. Alternatively, they can also complete an e-referral form by visiting: www.localsolutions.org.uk/carers-vaccine.

NHS Cheshire and Merseyside has launched a new campaign to increase awareness of online health services …
From 1 July 2023 the way members of the public make a complaint about primary care services to the commissioner is changing….
High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
