BOOSTER DAYS where you’ll see a mass media campaign takeover promoting the uptake of vaccines ahead of the festive season and there are a range of resources to support this on the Campaign Resource Centre (CRC). BOOST DAY will drive mass awareness and momentum around the importance of boosting your immunity this winter.

Messaging encourages those eligible to book their vaccines as soon as possible so we can all enjoy the festivities safely with our loved ones. This includes both flu and COVID-19 boosters, the evergreen offer for anyone still to get their 1st and 2nd doses of COVID-19 vaccine and second doses for 16-17-year olds. We welcome you all to get involved and use the BOOST DAY materials to make this day as big a success as possible.
Other new campaign material that you might have missed includes:

Winter Vaccinations
Covid-19 Health Behaviours
Hannukah Social Statics - For those who have not seen the new Festivals and Celebrations assets that went up on the 25th Nov - Hannukah runs until Dec 6 so there is still time to use these social media resources.
You can also find a helpful guide to navigating our Campaign Resource Centre (CRC).

Latest News

 For the latest Covid-19 advice please visit www.nhs.ukIf you think you may have Covid access the latest advise at




Patients booking in by telephone or online who meet the case definition will be directed to NHS 111.

An unwell patient with a relevant travel history should be identified when they book in at reception and immediately placed in a room away from other patients and staff. If COVID-19 is considered possible when a consultation is already in progress, withdraw from the room, close the door and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

Avoid physical examination of a suspected case. The patient should remain in the room with the door closed. Belongings and waste should remain in the room. The patient and any accompanying family should remain in the room with the door closed.

Advise others not to enter the room. If a clinical history still needs to be obtained or completed, do this by telephone.

If entry to the room or contact with the patient is unavoidable in an emergency, wear personal protective equipment (PPE) in line with standard infection control precautions, such as gloves, apron and fluid resistant surgical mask (FRSM) and keep exposure to a minimum. All PPE in full should be disposed of as clinical waste.

Should the patient need to use the toilet, they should be allocated a WC for their sole use. Instruct the patient to wash their hands thoroughly after toileting, and return directly to the room they have been isolated in and close the door. The toilet should be taken out of use until cleaned and disinfected following the decontamination guidance.

Ask the patient to call NHS 111 from their room, on their mobile (use GP surgery landline if mobile unavailable).

When a telephone interview is being conducted with a patient located elsewhere (for example at home) and it is determined that COVID-19 is possible (based on the PHE criteria for a possible case), then a face-to-face assessment in primary care (including out-of-hours centres and GP hubs) must be avoided. Instead, call the local secondary care infection specialist to discuss safe assessment, if hospital care is being considered, if not refer to NHS 111.
