Dear Colleague,

We write to you at a critical time during the COVID-19 pandemic, in your capacity as representatives of your communities.

The NHS is facing its biggest ever challenge to keep our patients safe. We must work jointly with local partners, providers and community representatives to tackle this pandemic together.

We understand that some of our most vulnerable communities are hesitant about having the COVID-19 vaccine due to disinformation and conspiracy theories currently circulating. The NHS wants to understand what these are and share the right information, through the right people, to help communities understand the facts.

Our aim is inform and educate our patients to help them make more informed decisions about the COVID-19 vaccine. Therefore, we would be grateful if you could help the NHS in Derbyshire to protect our communities from COVID-19 by taking a few minutes of your time to complete this simple survey.

Please do not share this survey link - it is intended for community representatives only.

Once the survey is complete we turn the final key messages into helpful resources (e.g. scripts, videos, images, posters etc.) and will write to you again to ask you to help share these messages with your communities.

We thank you in advance for sharing your feedback and hope we can work together going forward.

Wish best wishes, 

Communications & Engagement Team
NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
