Children's Flu Immunisation Survey
Are you a parent of a child aged between 2 and 11 years old living in Slough? If so, your local NHS would appreciate your help in completing a short survey on the flu. Please click on the following link to complete - https://bit.ly/2SSELSo.
Each year, the NHS works closely partnership with others to try and protect people from flu, especially those more at risk of developing serious complications such as people aged 65 and over; pregnant women; and young children. These groups are all eligible for a free flu vaccination on the NHS. Whilst the uptake of the flu vaccine is generally good in many of the groups and in line with national averages, Slough has always seen a lower uptake of the children’s flu immunisation than other local areas. Despite local efforts to address this, there have been no significant changes over the years. The short survey has been designed to help the partnership understand the potential reasons behind there being a lower uptake locally.
Steroid Emergency Card
People who take steroid medications every day of their life, will need to carry a steroid card which identifies to healthcare professionals that their medication cannot be stopped.
Steroid cards provide life-saving information should an individual become seriously ill or unconscious and are unable to communicate their health problems effectively. They are a simple but important step to help people should they become unwell and support their independence.
New NHS Steroid Emergency Card (Adult)
In August 2020, the Society for Endocrinology, Royal College of Physicians, and NHS England’s Patient Safety team released an NHS steroid emergency card (SEC). This is a patient-held prompt to healthcare professionals when the patient is in crisis, as an emergency, or when undergoing surgery or a procedure to ensure steroid treatment is given appropriately and promptly. In addition, the card contains a QR code that links to further specialist advice on the Society for Endocrinology website.
