Healthy Workforces and the COVID-19 Vaccine

In partnership with the East Riding Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the Community Health Care Partnership (CHCP) and ERYC, we are operating a vaccination bus which enables us to bring the vaccination programme to the workplace. This enables your workforce to receive their vaccine in a controlled, timely and safe environment on your doorstep ensuring minimal disruption to your working processes
