Launching our 2020 flu campaign

Flu can be a serious illness and for many people it may be fatal. On average 11,000 people die from the flu every year.

2020 is not an ‘average’ year.

The threat may be invisible but the protection against it is clear. Get your FREE flu jab. For the latest information on flu click here.

Thank you for the fantastic job you continue to do to protect yourselves, your colleagues, our patients and your friends and family during this extraordinary time.Whilst this has been a far from normal year, the reality of the flu season is upon us once again. But this year it’s even more important that we protect all our loved ones and ourselves from flu, which may co-exist with Covid-19.

This week, the Trust launches our flu campaign, and again, we are offering our staff the opportunity, and actively encouraging everyone, to take up the offer of the flu vaccination. This year, more than any year, it is critically important that we do so, to protect ourselves, our friends and family, and the patients that we visit.

For the first time, this year we’re able to offer colleagues who have allergies the egg free vaccination, and these will be available along with the normal vaccinations at local flu clinics, that will be advertised soon on Need to Know. Thank you in advance for taking up this opportunity and continuing to provide excellent care to our patients.
