Our Co-Chair Kim Ryley comments on the delays in cancer diagnosis and backlog in cancer treatment and care, which have arisen as a consequence of giving priority to tackling the COVID-19 pandemic
Do you have case studies relating to vaccine take-up among communities where people are experiencing multiple disadvantages? We're keen to hear from organisations or individuals working to increase vaccine take-up in these communities.
The report, ‘Health Inequalities, the Covid Vaccination & Community-Centred Approaches’, unpacks some of the most pervasive issues leading to low vaccine take-up in certain groups across the UK and, importantly, highlights ways to overcome the most prevalent barriers to health equality.
The Coalition for Personalised Care (C4PC) has released a report identifying key issues in tackling COVID vaccine hesitancy and reluctance. It is hoped that the insight gathered will improve understanding within the NHS, Department of Health and Social Care and Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government of how best to influence vaccine take-up.
In this article, The Year of Care team share how, together with practice teams, they have worked out how the nuts and bolts of care and support planning can be successfully adapted during the pandemic, including remote video and telephone ‘conversations’.
