The Government COVID-19 vaccines delivery plan aims to vaccinate tens of millions of people. Local Healthwatch can help support the immunisation of the population in several ways.
Provide rapid insight for policy-makers
Government and NHS policy-makers have asked us to regularly update them on the public feedback we receive about the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
Four ways you can help
- Send any new evidence or research you collect via the CRM or by emailing CV19enquiries@healthwatch.co.uk to inform our fortnightly updates to stakeholders.
- Undertake proactive research to help shape the local implementation of the vaccine programme. Use our standard questions to help develop your survey.
- Let us know if your staff or volunteers are already supporting work at the vaccination centres and are willing to share their experiences.
- Let us know if you are interested in supporting further national research and the seldom heard communities you want to reach.
Volunteer to help out
The Government is looking for more than 50,000 people to help out at vaccine centres with roles such as being a steward. You and local Healthwatch volunteers can find out more by visiting the NHS Volunteer Responders website.
