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.
Conducted between April and May, this research, from Co-Produce Care explores the continued issue around vaccine hesitancy and makes recommendations about how to address it.
VacciNation: Exploring vaccine confidence with people from African, Bangladeshi, Caribbean and Pakistani backgrounds living in England.
In this report, Healthwatch shares the views and experiences from 15,000 people across England about the Covid-19 vaccine and the roll out.
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.
Amongst growing concern that health inequalities in the U.K. are adversely affecting the roll-out of the national Covid vaccination programme, C4PC is drawing together a broad range of partner organisations to provide valuable insight from a range of perspectives which could help to tackle the issue. We'll be sharing the findings immediately after the event.
The Coalition has launched a series of new workstreams as we begin to implement a year of action on the roll out of personalised care. The first three priorities are health inequalities, the treatment backlog and the patient experience of health and care during the pandemic. The workstreams will develop practical outputs which are of use widely across health and social care.
Ian McCreath, Personalisation Lead at the Alzheimer's Society, explores how COVID-19 has impacted on the priorities for personalised care for people living with dementia. His blog encourages you to add your voice and ideas to their enquiry.
