Public Health England are warning of high levels of pollution across the country today. The levels are not expected to be particularly high across the whole of the South West, but they are expected to be moderate to high in Wiltshire.
Following an in-depth public consultation process, Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (Wiltshire CCG) has made the decision to permanently locate 20 specialist hospital dementia care beds in Amblescroft South, Fountain Way, Salisbury.
The commissioning of elements of primary care in Wiltshire may soon be the responsibility of Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group, as its expression of interest to embark on joint commissioning in conjunction with NHS England, who manage GP contracts nationally, has been approved.
The four day break over Easter can sometimes catch people off guard when it comes to planning for their healthcare needs. With GP surgeries in Wiltshire closed on 3rd and 6th April 2015, Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group is asking people to plan ahead and to consider the range of options available to them if they need medical advice or treatment over the bank holiday.
Doesn’t time go fast when you are having fun? Amazingly enough, the last time I put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) for my blog was just after Christmas, and now all of a sudden we’re facing Easter.
Happy New Year to one and all, and what an interesting one we have to look forward to; with a forthcoming election and the NHS already being used as a political football.
“The right healthcare, for you, with you, near you”
The vision of NHS Wiltshire CCG is “To ensure the provision of a health service which is high quality, effective, clinically led and local”. The focus of delivering care to people in their own homes or as close to home as possible remains of paramount importance.
