In Mind: Chief Executive Joe Rafferty talks about the COVID-19 vaccine, a more innovative NHS, our People Plan and more

15 February 2021
I’d like to start this week’s blog with a familiar message – please have your jab as soon as your opportunity arrives. Those 15 million who have had it already are people to be thanked and in our Trust, three quarters have now had their first dose - 6,090 of you. These are excellent figures, both nationally and within our Trust, but if you’ve been offered and not accepted the opportunity then I’m asking you to think again – remember that NHS hospitals treated 242,307 patients who were confirmed to have COVID-19 in 2020.
