Fire Safety (Do you live in high rise premises?)

Do you live in high rise premises?

 

Following the serious fatal fire on 14 June 2017 at Grenfell Tower, London. The Fire and Rescue Service promote the free offer of a home fire safety visit to residents and home owners.

 

These visits are an effective and proven way of delivering fire safety information directly and help householders to reduce the risk of fire in their home.

 

Following four key fire safety questions:

 

  • Does the householder have a working smoke alarm?
  • If the smoke alarm activates, would the householder be able to hear it?
  • Does the householder know what to do if the smoke alarm activates?
  • Is the householder able to get out of the premises if the smoke alarm activated?

 

If the householder answers no to any of the above questions please ask your GP for a fire safety referral.

COVID-19 VACCINATION UPDATE

 

As of Monday 21st December 2020 our practice is pleased to be able to start offering

Covid-19 Vaccinations to our patients.

 

Dr Kaul & Partners patients will attend the appointed vaccination hub located at;-

 

Bloxwich Active Living Centre

High Street

Walsall

WS3 2DA

 

Given the enormity of this task the practice and its staff will be working where

possible up to 7 days a week from 08:00 to 20:00 to ensure all eligible patients for the
vaccine are contacted and booked into the hub to receive their vaccine.
Patients over the age of 80 will be amongst the first group of patients to receive
the vaccine along with healthcare workers.

All patients will require 2 courses of the vaccine.

Once you have attended for your 1st dose of the vaccine you will be booked in for your 2nd
dose before you leave the hub this can be between 3 and 12 weeks after the 1st dose. It is
essential that each patient has 2 courses of the vaccine to increase immunity against the virus.
As you may have seen in the news the Pfizer vaccine which is the
one we currently have licensed is extremely fragile and can only be transported
in sub-zero temperatures. The vaccine has to be defrosted
at the hub and then drawn up and used within matter of days.

The hub will have to then

administer 975 vaccines per week to ensure there is no wastage.
We urge patients to keep their appointments once booked.
