The vaccination programme for COVID-19 is being managed at the national level by the Department of Health and Social Care. NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSEI) Regions have been given operational responsibility for ensuring delivery of the vaccination programme. In Greater Manchester this has been delegated to Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP) through the Section 7a agreement.
GMHSCP have established a Covid-19 vaccination strategic oversight board to oversee plans. The oversight group includes representation from primary care, local authorities, hospitals, emergency planning, finance, business intelligence, workforce, estates, nursing, adult social care, communications and others.
Please refer to the attached NHS briefing document for more information about plans to be ready to roll out a vaccine from December 2020.
