Healthy Start Scheme and COVID-19
Many families you are supporting may now be able to claim vouchers for the Healthy Start Scheme due to changes in their income as a result of COVID-19. They might not be aware that they can now claim, so as an organisation it would be helpful if you and your team/volunteers could signpost families to the scheme during this difficult time. It is also important to let families know that during the COVID-19 outbreak their application does NOT need to be signed by a health professional making the application process much easier for those in need.

Together We Can
What is Together We Can?
Together We Can is an initiative led by BCP Council, working in close partnership with many other public, private and voluntary sector organisations as well as community groups and residents who have offered to help and support the vulnerable people in our Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole communities to get through the coronavirus crisis.

Do you have a new medical problem you would like to discuss?
As you will be aware the NHS is currently dealing with the coronavirus pandemic which has drastically altered how we see patients. A concern with these new arrangements is that patients who would normally be attending to discuss symptoms are now staying away in order to allow us to focus on pandemic related healthcare.
Whilst we understand and are grateful for this, we would still encourage you to contact the surgery to discuss any new medical problems not related to the coronavirus illness. We can usually make an assessment over the telephone as to whether we can safely delay further assessments or investigations and are happy to give advice. Alternatively, it may be prudent to see you in person in which case strict infection control measures are in place in the surgery to protect both staff and patients. The aim of this is to identify and treat any more serious illnesses in a timely fashion rather than allow problems to worsen before the end of the social distancing period.
Further good advice about symptoms is available through the NHS website www.nhs.uk and you can also find relevant help here on our website.
