Herefordshire General Practice has been an integral part in the delivery of COVID Vaccinations throughout the county. Working through five ‘Primary Care Networks’ (based in Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Ledbury and Leominster), GP teams have so far delivered thousands of COVID vaccines.

This fantastic achievement would not have been possible without the support of the many volunteers who have given up their time to help. Usually working shifts of between 4-6 hours, volunteers have worked as car park marshals and in other supporting roles. They’ve turned out in all weathers to help keep patients COVID safe as they visit the centres for their jabs.

The volunteer programme is a great example of partnership working between Healthwatch HerefordshireHVOSSTalk Community and Herefordshire General Practice/Taurus Healthcare.

You can now read about some of the volunteers’ experiences in the great new case studies developed by Healthwatch Herefordshire.
