This week on the podcast we unpick this huge piece of news and discuss the incredibly complicated logistics behind rolling out a vaccination programme this big, why it’s essential the government gets the communication spot on and how the NHS is approaching this challenge.

We explore what impact this would have on care provided and what is being done to mitigate it.

The vaccine programme rumbles on and we discuss the rollout in primary care expected next week and some of the sticking points faced by GPs.

Featuring Alastair McLellan, Annabelle Collins and Jasmine Rapson.
