Over 25,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been given to some of Rotherham’s most vulnerable residents and frontline health and care staff just five weeks after the first resident in the borough received the life-saving jab.
The COVID-19 vaccination programme started in Rotherham today as 94-year old Tom Drury-Smith, from Todwick, became the first Rotherham resident to receive the ground-breaking vaccine at his local GP-led vaccination service. This comes as the roll out of the biggest vaccination programme in NHS history gains further momentum.
ADULTS in Rotherham are set to get access to quick and easy help and advice on a range of mental health and wellbeing issues all in one place as a new online platform is launched on Monday 18th May for Mental Health Awareness Week (18th - 24th May). The online platform, RotherHive (rotherhive.co.uk/), has been developed by the NHS Rotherham CCG to provide a range of verified practical tips and advice as well as local, national and online services, organisations and groups that adults in Rotherham can access for expert advice to help look after their mental health and well-being.
