Over the past two weeks, carers from Radfield Home Care Wycombe, Beaconsfield and South Bucks have been welcoming the opportunity to have their first Covid-19 vaccines, in a bid to help eradicate the deadly virus in their local community.

The NHS have set up vaccination sites at Stoke Mandeville Hospital and now also Amersham Hospital, currently providing the roll-out of the Pfizer vaccines to health and social care staff, whilst members of the community are being invited to local community vaccination centres.

Further information on the local sites can be found online at

Katy Cresswell, care manager for Radfield Home Care Wycombe, Beaconsfield and South Bucks, sees the vaccination programme as a hugely important step forward in the fight against the virus, saying:



“The arrival of the vaccine for health and social care staff, in addition to the most vulnerable groups in society, is the news we have been waiting for and is clearly good progress in overcoming the uncontrollable levels of Covid-19 we have seen this winter. However, we are not becoming complacent and the processes we use for the purpose of infection control, including the full use of PPE are very much still in practice and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. We continue to follow all government and UKHCA guidance to do everything we can to ensure the safety of our clients and team.”



In addition to receiving the vaccine, the Radfield care team have also been helping take their clients to their vaccine appointments as and when required. Katy added:



“The dedication and effort shown by our team over this most challenging of times has been phenomenal. They have really gone the extra mile to help our clients through the pandemic and now hopefully there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”
