Case study

COVID-19 vaccination service

A unique collaboration across PCNs

Under the most challenging circumstances, Here brought together a collaboration across 7 PCNs to support the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination program across Brighton and Hove. Working at pace with system partners, we designed and delivered both a high-capacity delivery stream at the Brighton Racecourse and bespoke outreach services to cover care homes, housebound individuals and Mobile Vaccination Units (MVU) which travelled across the region to ensure equality of access.

2023 marked a very special moment in time for us with the end of our formal involvement in the COVID-19 vaccine primary care collaboration in Brighton & Hove. It is impossible to recount all the ups and downs – building new sites from scratch, creating a new workforce, designing outreach, and dealing with short notice change of plans, this was a workstream like no other.

Between December 2020 and Nov 2023, we delivered over 358,000 vaccines. Working in collaboration with Primary Care Networks across Brighton & Hove and the Havens we ensured that everyone had access to a COVID-19 vaccine. Together we accomplished amazing things.

Our roving services delivered over 87,000 vaccines to around 61,000 people, protecting those that are most vulnerable – administering in their homes, care homes, homeless settings and community hubs for minority groups.

928 Mobile Vaccination Units (MVU) were also deployed, meaning those who couldn’t access the main vaccination centres were able to access and MVU closer to them and within their communities.

This was the collective effort of a generation. One we are extraordinarily proud to have been a part of. COVID-19 changed our world forever and it changed us forever too. It changed our relationship with this city, it got us to really look at how we do things and who we do it for. We are so deeply grateful to all of those who took part.
