It’s fighting talk as social care teams across the Partnership roll up their sleeves and join the campaign – the Flu Fighters campaign that is.
Every Winter staff across NHS Fife and social care services are encouraged to do their bit and get themselves vaccinated so they can, in turn, protect those they care for. This year, the Health and Social Care Partnership is seeing hundreds of colleagues across care homes, home care and supporting teams get their jag and get protected. Even survival expert Ray Mears has joined the movement!
David Heaney, Divisional General Manager (East) gives more info: “Teams working in the home environment, whether it be someone’s own home or one of the Partnership’s care homes, are just as likely to be exposed to the flu virus, so we really need everyone to be our flu champions, acting as ambassadors for flu vaccination and to go and get vaccinated themselves. The teams are taking up the cause to protect themselves and those they deliver care to.”
