On this page we’ve included the information to do with Covid-19 that we feel will be most useful for our staff and clients, with easy-to-click links giving more in-depth guidance.
We still be producing specific news updates around various Covid-19 topics under our ‘Latest News’ tab in ‘Covid Info‘, but we felt it would be helpful to have an ‘index’ in one place containing key information. This index and links will be updated as necessary.
We are also sharing below information on how to go about booking your Covid vaccination, as well as links to FAQs regarding getting it, in case you have concerns.
Every vaccination gives us hope.
All adults over the age of 18 can now book their Covid-19 vaccine and people can have a second dose 8 weeks after their first dose. Here’s everything you need to know about the vaccine.
The best way out of this pandemic
The vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and those around you from the virus. This includes in the workplace.
Vaccinated people are far less likely to get symptoms from Covid-19. And are even more unlikely to get seriously ill, be admitted to hospital, or to die from it. There’s growing evidence that vaccinated people are less likely to pass the virus to others.
All those aged 18 and over can book their vaccination through the NHS booking service, wait to be contacted by your GP surgery, or go to a walk-in NHS COVID-19 vaccination site near you.
It’s the biggest vaccination programme in NHS history and has already saved thousands of lives by preventing the spread of Covid-19. For more information, visit nhs.uk/covidvaccine
