In late January, the UK Secretary of State for Health, Matt Hancock, visited Basildon University Hospital of the Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust. In his visit, Mr Hancock spoke to staff members about treating patients with COVID-19 and the progress of the Vaccination Programme.

Basildon University Hospital began offering COVID-19 vaccinations in December as part of the NHS vaccination programme. We are incredibly proud of our Medic Now paramedics who are supporting the Trust in administering the vaccines to the public.

"I want to say a massive thank you from the bottom of my heart to everybody working in the NHS."

Mr Hancock also expressed his gratitude for all NHS staff and reminded the public to do their bit in following the rules to keep coronavirus cases down and protect the NHS:

Medic Now are honoured to be supporting the NHS Vaccination Programme, and we feel so privileged to be working with all of our dedicated paramedics who are truly going above and beyond against these unprecedented times.
