Patients and visitors

More in this section

In preparation for the flu vaccination programme, the Trust is required to complete a healthcare worker flu vaccination best practice management checklist to demonstrate its preparedness to engage with and vaccinate 100% of frontline workers. 

The Trust completed this and it was signed off by the quality and performance committee in September 2020 as fully compliant.
