'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.
Lateral Flow Testing
As you may already be aware, Salford is one of the many localities to begin rapid targeted testing using lateral flow antigen tests. We are targeting our testing towards specific groups of people who are most at risk of exposure to the virus because of the employment sector they work in or their workplace and who, if they had Covid-19 without realising, would be at higher risk of spreading it to work colleagues or the general public.
As one of our identified target groups, we would like to invite your personal assistants to be tested twice within every 7 day period (allowing where possible 3 days between 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
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.
More information about testing can be found in our Frequently Asked Questions document (located at the bottom of this webpage and entitled ‘Salford COVID-19 Testing for PAs – FAQs’).
If you have any further questions or require further information, please contact Chris Ogden at Salford Clinical Commissioning Group via: Christopher.email@example.com’
We have three opportunities for you to do just that. In summary, these are:
1) Become a Penderels Trust PA Champion
2) Get involved in the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership and let them know your experiences of being a PA (free shopping voucher for involvement)
3) Do you support someone living with a neurological condition like multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease? Neurocare KnowHow are looking for PAs to share their stories (free shopping voucher for involvement).
For more information on all these opportunities, please download the PA Champions flyer at the bottom of this page.
Salford University has a day called 'Voices of the Service User and Carers' that will take place in February 2021. On that day, student nurses have the opportunity to virtually meet people who use services and their families.
This helps nurses to understand what it is like for people using services and their families, their experiences, their needs and most importantly, their points of view.
If you would like to take part you will have the chance to talk to staff from the university beforehand and talk to students for up to 40 minutes and answer their questions. You only have to share what information you wish and to have a support worker to help you if you wish. The activity will take place via the internet.
If you would like to find out more, please email Mary Braine by emailing M.E.Braine@salford.ac.uk
Please find below some general information on the services we offer.
