PLAN - The overview plan for winter 21/22, which includes messages and activity by audience which is happening at a NW London level is available below. Whilst it is beneficial to have consistency in messaging and objectives, the way in which it is delivered in each local area should be driven by local intelligence and what will work best for those communities.

AREAS OF FOCUS - As we receive new data about flu and covid uptake by PCN, we will share this with teams to help focus activity.
MEETINGS - There is a NW London wide comms and engagement call every other Wednesday where we will share any messaging updates, hear from boroughs about what is working well, share ideas, discuss what further materials would be useful etc. If you are not currently on the invite list please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the national campaign focusing on flu and covid booster jabs. As well as the national material, a range of local assets have also been developed.

Managing your Covid-19 symptoms from home.
The social media assets provide information to people who contract Covid-19 on how they can relieve their symptoms from home. The assets cover the three most commonly referenced symptoms: breathlessness, high temperature and a continuous cough. They are accompanied by suggested text.
Breathlessness - It is common to experience breathlessness when you have Covid-19. Taking slow breaths, keeping your room cool and changing your position can help keep you more comfortable. If your symptoms are severe you should contact NHS 111.
High temperature - If you have a high temperature (38C or above) it is important you get lots of rest and drink plenty of water. You may want to take ibuprofen or paracetamol - if so, ensure you read the instructions on the packet.
Continuous cough - A cough usually passes in 4-5 days, but can be uncomfortable and impact your sleep. To help relieve symptoms try lying on your side or sitting upright, having a teaspoon of honey, or asking a loved one or neighbour visit the local pharmacy for advice on treatment.
Community pharmacy toolkit: Delivering an open access vaccination clinic
The new toolkit provides guidance and resources to help pharmacy teams to deliver open access COVID-19 and flu vaccination clinics this winter. Developed jointly by Doctors of the World (DOTW), the National Pharmacy Association (NPA) and NHS England and NHS Improvement, it will help community pharmacies ensure winter vaccines are accessible to everyone, including thousands of carers and people from vulnerable groups, who often face barriers when accessing “mainstream” healthcare, resulting in poor health outcomes.
