Cringleford Surgery, near Norwich, has today joined seven other GP practice sites across Norfolk and Waveney to begin vaccinating patients against Covid-19.
The GP sites will be acting as ‘primary care hubs’; vaccinating patients from their own practice as well as other neighbouring practices.
Seven GP practices across Norfolk and Waveney are poised to start vaccinating patients against COVID-19.
The first practices in our area will be delivering the vaccine from 8am today (Tuesday 15 December) with more sites set to go live in the coming days and weeks.
A new mental health campaign, Not Alone, has been launched to help people who will find this Christmas particularly difficult to deal with.
Norfolk County Council, the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, local mental health charity, Norfolk and Waveney Mind, and the county’s NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are working in partnership with the support of Archant to encourage people to reach out to those who may be struggling.
