'Spirit of Salford' is the combined efforts of organisations (including Salford City Council and NHS Salford) in Salford to help everyone in the city stay safe and help reduce the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19. Their information can be found in the flyers that can be downloaded from the bottom the page.
A letter (updated November 2020) to direct payment recipients in Salford from adult social care services/NHS provides lots of useful information about support available during the Coronavirus pandemic. If you receive a direct payment, you may have already received this letter but you can download a copy at the bottom of this page.
There is also some information on the safe use of medicines.
We have been working with Salford City Council and Salford NHS to make sure they have the right information to invite PAs for their Covid-19 vaccination. We have written to all direct payment employers so you should have had a letter about the plan in Salford. Your PA will be invited directly via letter which will include a booking code. If you are a PA, please ask your employer for more information.
Lateral Flow Testing
All PAs are eligible for twice weekly testing for Covid-19 using the Lateral Flow Tests. PAs can now order these tests online to be delivered directly to their home. Click on https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests to order tests. PAs can create an account which will save time when re-ordering tests. This test is for people who do not have symptoms.
PAs can still pick up LFT tests via one of the local community test centres which are now open. This testing is for PAs who do not have any of the identified symptoms of Covid-19. Bookings can be made via the following link: https://contactus.salford.gov.uk/?formtype=BOOK_LFT
Anyone who has symptoms or tests positive on their lateral flow test should self-isolate immediately and take a confirmatory PCR test which can be booked here: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
All testing is voluntary but we know up to one third of people who test positive for Covid-19 have no symptoms at all (asymptomatic) and can therefore spread it unknowingly. That is why testing is so important.
By taking the test to find out if they have Covid-19 and taking the right action to self-isolate, your PA will not only be protecting people they care for and their family members, but will also be helping the people of Salford to go about their daily lives with a reduced risk of catching Covid-19.
You can read more in our Frequently Asked Questions documents which can be opened/downloaded from our Covid-19 section on our home page.
If you have any further questions or require further information, please contact Chris Ogden at Salford Clinical Commissioning Group via: Christopher.firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you an organisation, group or forum who are passionate about supporting the personal assistant network? Could you represent the issues, challenges, and good practice that takes place within your borough?
Organisations/representatives who join the panel will receive £1000 to attend 10 monthly meetings between February and November and gather feedback from employers and PAs in their locality.
For more information and to apply, please head to their website www.embracewiganandleigh.org.uk/gmpan
