NNUH hits best-ever flu jab total
A record number of staff at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital have benefited from a flu vaccination over the past few months – one of the best levels of take-up amongst NHS staff in the country.
The “Proud to be an NNUH flu fighter” campaign has proved a massive success with over 6,000 staff receiving the protective vaccination, representing over 80 per cent of staff – the best-ever figure for NNUH.
Hilary Winch, Head of Workplace Health, Safety & Wellbeing, (pictured) said: “We take our duty of care very seriously at NNUH and are delighted so many members of staff have recognised their professional responsibility and taken up the offer of a flu vaccination.”
Jeremy Over, Director of Workforce, added: “The ‘Proud to be an NNUH flu fighter’ campaign has been going extremely well. I give my thanks to our flu fighter team and colleagues across the hospital for their incredible support and rolling up their sleeves so that we can protect our patients, our colleagues, families and community. We are proud to be a flu fighting Trust.”
The flu jab campaign had an amazing start back in October when 1,500 members of NNUH staff were vaccinated in four days, and the numbers have steadily risen week by week.
