Patients

Many of you have said how difficult it is to manage patient expectation at the moment - particularly around the Covid Vaccine.

We have written this message that you might want to personalise with your name/logo and put on your website/print off and put on your door etc. You could also use it for Facebook and twitter. The idea of this is that it gives the message that we are all learning together in a fast moving world, but that we will keep them informed by regularly updating them, probably via your website, which will hopefully reduce the phone calls that you are receiving.
