Great Cheverell Parish Council Wiltshire Poppy Appeal
Look after yourself this winter

Published 15 November 2019

Safe Online?
As the dark nights draw in across Wiltshire and winter really starts to bite, it’s worth thinking about how we can all make sure we’re looking after ourselves and staying well over the cold winter months.

The NHS recently launched its annual winter campaign – Help Us Help You– which is here to help make it easier to understand the things you can do. We all know hospitals and surgeries can be especially busy during the winter months and it can often be tricky to know the best place to go for help, so here’s some handy tips to see you though until spring:


1. It’s not too late to get your flu jab

The free flu vaccination is offered to those who are at increased risk from the effects of flu, including people aged 65 and over, pregnant women, those with underlying health conditions and children aged 2-10. If you’ve not had one yet, it’s not too late.


2. Call 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk online

If you’re unsure where to go and think you need urgent medical attention, but it’s not life-threatening, contacting NHS 111 can help you make sure you reach the most suitable NHS service for your needs.


3. Ask a pharmacist for advice before minor ailments or winter illnesses get worse

Community pharmacists are qualified healthcare professional who can offer clinical advice and over the counter medicines to safely manage things like coughs, colds and sore throats.


It’s quick and convenient to see a pharmacist– you don’t need to book an appointment and can often be seen in a private consultation room.


4. See your GP in the evening or weekend if you can’t see them during the day

If you need to see a GP but find it hard to find the time during routine hours, appointments with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professionals are often available in the evenings and at weekends through many local practices or other local NHS services.

Countess Roundabout Road Works

Published 4 November 2019

You may have noticed signs in the area giving advance notice of lane closures at Countess roundabout.

Highways England are putting in temporary traffic management to help ground investigation teams carry out survey work safely.

Traffic management is due to begin on Sunday 3 November, and involves lane closures on the roundabout and its approaches, over a six-week period, from late Sunday evenings through to early Friday morning. To minimise disruption during busier times, this will be removed from Friday morning around 6am to Sunday evening.

Whilst Highways England understand there will inevitably be some disruption there are no diversions planned, and traffic will still have access to Countess roundabout.

Separately there’s also surveys happening in the Winterbourne Stoke area between Monday 18 and 22 November – with temporary traffic lights in place overnight from 8pm until 6am.

Anyone looking for more information on what this work involves can read Highways England’s online Q&A via the Amesbury to Berwick Down (Stonehenge) scheme website, here: https://highwaysengland.co.uk/what-were-doing-on-site-this-autumn/.
