The Health Secretary has praised the work of a Cumbrian primary care network for its performance in rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine.
Matt Hancock has today praised the Barrow and Millom Primary Care Network in a letter to Barrow MP Simon Fell.
In the letter, he says it is one of the best performing networks in England for delivering vaccines to those people who are in cohorts one to six.
Simon said: “It’s very good of the Secretary of State to take the time to write to me and to praise the Barrow and Millom PCN.
“I join him in thanking our incredible PCN, all of the volunteers who give up thousands of hours to make the programme run smoothly, and to everyone across Barrow who has answered the call and got the jab.
“The vaccine is our route out of the pandemic, and I’m delighted that we are on course in Barrow to hit the target of having offered a vaccine to all those in cohorts in one to nine by mid-April. It’s a fantastic achievement by everyone involved.”
