Spread your Winter Warmth…

The recent snowfall and freezing temperatures have seen most of us reach for the thermostat and think about comfort food to feel warmer. Unfortunately, this isn't something that everyone across the region can do and many are now struggling with the cold. Older people living on a year-round fixed pension find the winter months particularly hard; often living in poorer housing stock, without central heating and not receiving the cheapest fuel tariffs means that staying warm is really hard. And staying healthy and well depends on staying warm. More »

Each year, older people receive a Winter Fuel Allowance to help them through the winter months but not everyone depends on this allowance to prepare meals, keep the lights on and heat their homes. Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland is asking you to support those older people in your town, village and street who otherwise will be making choices about which they can do without – food or warmth. Please, if you don't need some or all of your fuel allowance, consider donating it to help someone who does.

Age UK has been campaigning for local residents to let our older people know that they are Not Forgotten this winter. After a hard year of isolation, loneliness, bereavement and fear of Covid-19, winter temperatures are just making it harder still. You can share your warmth with someone for whom the donation can mean the difference between barely surviving winter or reaching springtime in good physical and mental health.

Please, if you can, make a donation today of all or part of your winter fuel allowance.

Please donate online at Virgin Money Giving : https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/displayCharityCampaignPage.action?campaignId=14738&charityId=1016041

Or send a cheque made payable to Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland. Please send for the attention of Tracey Pollard, Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland, Lansdowne House, 113 Princess Road East, Leicester. LE1 7LA and reference "spread your warmth" on the back of the cheque. » Less

Coronavirus Vaccination Scams

Posted: Fri, 22 Jan 2021 11:47 by Dawn Roache

Coronavirus Vaccination Scams

As of 7 January 2021, Action Fraud had received 57 reports from members of the public who have been sent text messages claiming to be from the NHS, offering them the opportunity to sign up for coronavirus vaccinations. The texts ask the recipient to click on a link which takes them to an online form where they are prompted to input personal and financial details. In some cases the online form has looked very similar to the real NHS website. More »

Pauline Smith, Head of Action Fraud, said:
"Remember, the vaccine is only available on the NHS and is free of charge. The NHS will never ask you for details about your bank account or to pay for the vaccine. If you receive an email, text message or phone call purporting to be from the NHS and you are asked to provide financial details, this is a scam."

How to protect yourself:
In the UK, coronavirus vaccinations will only be available via the National Health Services of England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland. You can be contacted by the NHS, your employer, a local GP surgery or pharmacy, to receive your vaccination. Remember, the vaccinations are free of charge and you will not be asked for a payment.

The NHS will never:

  • ask for your bank account or card details
  • ask for your PIN or banking passwords
  • arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine
  • ask for documentation to prove your identity, such as a passport or utility bills

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious about an email you have received, forward it to report@phishing.gov.uk. Suspicious text messages should be forwarded to the number 7726, which is free of charge.

If you believe you are the victim of a fraud, please report this to Action Fraud as soon as possible by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk » Less

A message from Dean and Smedley

To protect our staff we are only allowing 3 patients in at a time

Please wait outside until a slot becomes available

Thank you

Before you wait to enter;

  • Allow enough time for prescriptions to be completed; 3-4 days rather than the 2-3 days due to unprecedented volumes and delays from wholesalers. Unless prescriptions are urgent there will be a delay, so please ring to check they are here to avoid disappointment.
  • Shop stock is running very low, so please ring to see if we have the items you require. We are struggling with paracetamol tablets & liquid, hand washes & sanitisers, disinfectants & thermometers.
  • Our preference is that all payments are on card to reduce money contact, so please try your best.
  • We ask others in the community to help us to cope with delivery demands due to self-isolation with prescription collections. We will however need a consent form to be completed each time.
  • Finally, we are working as hard as we can during exceptional circumstances so would appreciate you treat our staff with the courtesy and patience you would expect yourselves.

Thank you for your understanding and support

Will all customers to try to use card payments please. This the safest way to reduce transfer of the virus, not just at the chemist but at all retailers. Thank You.
