Chippenham Town Council offers to support the COVID 19 vaccination programme

The Town Council has recently contacted both Wiltshire Council and the local Clinical Commissioning Group, the NHS Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire CCG to offer the availability of the Neeld Community & Arts Centre as a venue for the roll out of the COVID 19 mass vaccination programme.

The Council has now heard back from the Clinical Commissioning Group who are leading the vaccination programme in Wiltshire.

The Town Council has been told that all vaccination sites are already designated in the Chippenham area, which is Rowden Medical Practice.  The Council thought it important  to let you a know that the offer has been made on behalf of the Town Council.

Should the situation change, or the requirements of the CCG they shall contact the Council.  The Town Council are ready, willing and able to step in to assist with the vaccination rollout at short notice.

 

In the meantime, the Town Council continue to support the National Blood Transfusion Service with the regular blood donor sessions held in the Neeld.
