Malmesbury League of Friends assists COVID vaccination programme

MLOF has made two donations to enable the roll-out of the Covid vaccination programme at the Malmesbury Primary Care Centre (MPCC) to be speeded up.

It has donated £3,000 to install vinyl flooring and a sink in an available ground floor room at MPCC to enable patients with Covid symptoms to be seen in the surgery when there are also vaccinations in progress.

It has also donated £1,000 to purchase ten double screen monitors to enable vaccinators to have access to two screens simultaneously, checking the vaccine details on one system and the patients’ medical notes on the other to ensure the correct vaccine is compatible with each patient.

Lisa Hepworth. Care Co-ordinator at MPCC, said: “The vaccination programme is going well. We are most grateful for the two generous donations by MLOF which will certainly help to keep it ahead of schedule.”

David Hide, MLOF Chairman, said: “We were delighted to help. We all have an interest to ensure that as many Malmesbury residents receive their vaccinations as quickly as possible.”
