COVID-19 Vaccination UpdateThe NHS is now ready to deliver a vaccination programme for England so that those who need it most will be able to access vaccinations as soon as they are available. A prioritisation list has been produced in order for the vaccine to be delivered to groups who will need it first. The NHS will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about location and date. We will contact you when it’s the right time to come forward, so please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine before then.Social Prescribing TeamSocial prescribers connect patients to non-medical support, such as day centres, charities or community groups, in the community to improve their wellbeing and tackle social isolation. They enable people to have more control over their lives, develop skills and give their time to others, through involvement in community groups.
