On Saturday 29th January our MP Lee Rowley came to the Medical Centre to volunteer his help at one of our busy Vaccination Clinics.
Lee is well versed in the organisation and structure of Primary Care and Community Health and we are grateful for the support he gave us in mid December when we hit some last minute obstacles in being able to setup vaccinations at the Centre.
Since then we have delivered over 12,000 vaccines to those attending the centre, as well as housebound patients and Care Home patients and staff, not just in Dronfield but across the whole of Chesterfield also.
If we remain supplied it is our intention to continue safe convenient and efficient vaccine rollout to all the at risk groups in Dronfield and the wider area.
Once Lee had been screened with a Lateral Flow Test to show he was safe to become part of our team, he donned scrubs and learned about the Stubley vaccination process. He was taught how we dilute and draw up the Pfizer vaccine which was in use on the day, familiarised himself with the clinical process and the IT data input and helped with post-vaccine care, ushering patients to their observation posts and was interested in getting feedback from staff, other volunteers and those who were getting their first jabs.
