SSP vaccinating care home residents and staff

SSP Health staff have been given a warm reception when they have been out and about vaccinating staff and residents at care homes.
One team from our Ince practices, in Wigan – Dr Victor Ilubaera, Practice Nurse Hannah Vose, Practice Nurse Vicky Parkinson and Admin Assistant Dionne Liptrot – were given a ‘Heroes of The Week’ award from Ash Tree House Care Home.
Janet Ingham, Practice Manager at Claire House Surgery, said: “Our team has been working hard all week to hit our target of having all care homes in the area covered. They received lots of lovely comments from staff and residents.
“To be given the award of Heroes of the Week was the icing on the cake of a successful initiative. It was a really nice gesture by the home and shows how grateful everyone is to have the vaccine.”
The wider team who have been vaccinating people in care homes across Hindley PCN were HCAs Jayne Clark and Ashley Fern; ANPs Tracy Williams and Trudy Lowe and Admin Assistant Andrea Fant.
The Bowery GP Dr Ritu Maini took photos of her team at Greengate House care home in St Helens where staff and residents were very grateful to receive their vaccinations.
Dr Maini said: “It is wonderful to be able to vaccinate our care home residents and staff from this awful virus. 
“Our vaccination programme is going well and it gives huge relief to the many people who are most vulnerable.”
