City-wide vaccination clinic at Darnall
We’re really pleased to report that the vaccination centre at Darnall has now been mobilised after a very rapid deployment period. This follows our work with the CCG in response to supporting PCNs and practices who have needed to prioritise their time back into patient care and have been unable to continue their vaccination offer to cohorts 10-12.
Once we’ve completed our first two weeks of vaccinations and have a better understanding of demand we’re keen to work with those PCNs not offering vaccinations currently to understand how we can reach those who haven't yet taken up the vaccine in their practice populations. We would like to tailor our approach to each PCN, where this is wanted and practicable, a questionnaire should be landing with Clinical Directors and Network Managers imminently.
On the back of a walk-in trial last weekend at The Crucible Theatre, we will also consider whether further pop-ups are appropriate, and if so where, and whether the Darnall centre should continue to offer a walk-in element, ideal for those patients finding it difficult to access the national booking system.
