Welcome to the January 2021 edition of Involve - a stakeholder update from NHS Vale of York CCG.

 


Throughout the roll out of the vaccination we have a number of key messages that we need your helping in spreading through social media, networks, websites, newsletters and more.

We have attached a number of messages that you can use through your channels of communication - any help would be very much appreciated.

Update on the roll out of the COVID vaccination

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus. There is no need for patients to get in touch with their GP surgery – their surgery will contact individuals when it’s their turn.
 
The vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and increasing numbers of local vaccination centres in North Yorkshire and York run by GP surgeries. The jab is currently being rolled out to all those aged 80 and over, along with frontline health and care workers and care home residents. People aged 75 and over and then all those who are 70 and over, together with clinically extremely vulnerable patients will follow. Read more.

NHS Vale of York’s Clinical Chair and GP in Selby, Dr Nigel Wells, talks about why it’s important to wait to be contacted about your COVID vaccine in the short video below

The NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme is stepping up in York with Askham Bar Park and Ride now one of the first NHS Vaccination Centres, offering additional vaccinations to people from across the region.

Since December 2020 residents within the City of York have been invited by their GP practice to have their vaccination at the Askham Bar site.

COVID-19 vaccine scam alert

We are aware that some people are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination.

People are warned to be alert to these scams. The vaccine is only available from the NHS and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn. The NHS will:

  • NEVER ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.
  • NEVER ask for payment for the vaccine or for your bank details.

If you receive a suspicious message, forward it to 7726 to report it.

Leading GP urges people to keep on top of their anxiety about COVID pandemic during lockdown

A leading GP is urging people to take care of themselves during the national lockdown, with doctors seeing lots of “anxiety, worry and stress” in people contacting their local surgeries.

Dr Nigel Wells, Clinical Chair of NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group and a GP at Beech Tree Surgery in Selby, says it is important to take steps to offset concerns caused by discussion of the COVID-19 pandemic in the news and on social media.

With England three weeks into a third national lockdown, which is due to continue for at least another three weeks, Dr Well says it is crucial to take control of the things we can do to ease feelings of anxiety and worry as the Government and its advisers work through the issues surrounding the pandemic.

New consultation launched for Local Plan proposals

Selby District Council is asking people to get involved in ambitious long-term plans about new homes, business growth and local services such as schools. 

It’s part of the development of a new Local Plan. This will set a framework for future development in the district up to 2040.  It’ll be used by the Council to guide decisions on planning applications and to support work with developers.

The consultation will take place over six weeks from 29 January to 12 March. Residents, businesses and community groups can get involved by visiting www.selby.gov/localplan.

Deputy Leader of the Council and Lead Member for Place Shaping, Cllr Richard Musgrave, explained: “The Local Plan sets out the vision for future development in the district. It is the local guide to what can be built where, shaping infrastructure investments, and determining the future pattern of development.  

“It strikes an important balance between the need for development, regeneration and renewal and the protection of the natural and historic environment. The plan makes sure that future development will take place in a planned way, supported by improvements to highways, schools, healthcare facilities and other local infrastructure. This means we can continue to attract investment that creates jobs, opportunities and good quality homes.

“Our Local Plan supports our long-term ambitions as a local authority and sets out where there is potential for growth and the development opportunities in our district.

“This stage is an important opportunity for residents to comment on the options and tell us what they think.”

The Local Plan has four key themes – housing, environment, communities, and employment. It comprises a number of different, detailed documents with policies that address key planning issues as well as policies that allocate land for specific uses.

Following the consultation exercise the comments received will inform the final version of the plan which will be subject to further consultation before it is sent to the Secretary of State when it will be subject to examination by an independent inspector.
