  • NETMUMS PREVENT FORUM

    Published 08/07/21

    On 06 July CT Policing launched an online ‘drop-in’ clinic on Netmums. It will be open for six weeks to allow everyone the opportunity to ask questions about Prevent and seek advice about radicalisation and extremism.

    Not all children are vulnerable to radicalisation but some are, and every parent and carer needs to know the potential risks and what to look out for. The forum will assist in understanding this better, but there are also informative articles on the Netmums website to find out how to make your child digitally savvy to help protect them and help make them more resilient to potential risks. There is also advice on how to have a conversation with your child about the potential risks of radicalisation as you would with drugs, sexting and child sexual exploitation.

    We are here to help and to listen. You will not be wasting our time. The earlier you tell us your worries, the quicker we can get help for the person you care which will protect them from being groomed and radicalised.

    Go to Netmums to read the forum [https://www.netmums.com/coffeehouse/being-mum-794/tweens-teens-61/2f7cf95d-sponsored-join-our-expert-q-a-and-find-out-more-about-online-extremism.html]

    Find out more by visiting www.actearly.uk or If you are concerned act early and seek advice from the advice line on 0800 011 3764

  • Surge Testing and Vaccinations

    Published 26/05/21

    Step Up For Hounslow!  

    Surge testing and increased vaccination continues in Hounslow to help tackle a new COVID-19 variant of concern. We need everyone to play their part and to get PCR tested as soon as possible and to get vaccinated when they can. Here is some new information for you to share please. 

    • Residents are stepping up to get PCR tested.  1,982 PCR tests were completed on Tuesday 25 May.
    • We are continuing to door-knock in the Hounslow West area of the borough today [staff are carrying appropriate I.D], delivering PCR tests and leaving letters with information and details of support for anyone who is not at home. 
    • Today [Thursday 27 May], we’re launching the first of several new ‘Pop-up' vaccination clinics — please see table far below for more details.  
    • Hounslow Council Leader, Cllr Steve Curran and Director of Public Health, Kelly O'Neill, have issued a joint statement this afternoon on clarification of Government Travel guidance. They said: “We are delighted for the sake of residents and businesses that the Government has clarified their travel guidance after calls from all eight areas designated for surge testing and vaccination, who recognised the issues and worked together to ensure common sense prevailed. Confusion caused by changes in the guidance last Friday brought great inconvenience, worry and concern to many Hounslow residents and businesses, and on top of this, it distracted Council staff and NHS colleagues from the delivery of the surge testing and vaccination programme which is our top priority. We encourage every resident in Hounslow and London to be tested and vaccinated as soon as possible. This is the only way we will beat the virus.”   
    • Our ‘Step Up For Hounslow!’ multi-channel Communications and Engagement activity is helping to spread the word. For example, images of the campaign have been featured on the BBC, in the Guardian as well as on ITV. We generated more than a million impressions of our content on Twitter, increasing our number of followers five-fold.   
    • Surge Testing and Vaccinations activity will continue for approximately five weeks. 
    • For more information, visit: www.hounslow.gov.uk/surge which we are updating regularly as details are confirmed. 
    • Follow us at: LBofHounslow (Twitter) and London Borough of Hounslow (Facebook). 
    • You can also keep in touch via our e-newsletter: sign up to our Covid-19 enewsletter 
    • For now, please remember to follow the basics including ‘Hands, Face, Space and Fresh Air’.

  • RISE IN NEW VARIANTS AND THE VACCINE

    Published 20/05/21

    Rise in new variants and the vaccine

    Across all NW London boroughs [Brent, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster], we are seeing a rise in the rates of new Covid-19 variants.

    There is no evidence to suggest the Covid-19 vaccine is not working in terms of providing protection against variants, but it has never been more important to come forward for your first vaccine and ensure you have your second for maximum protection.

    All our large vaccination centres listed below will all be providing Pfizer vaccines from tomorrow.

    Anyone over the age of 36 can now book at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/or walk-in to one of our vaccination centres for a first dose of the vaccine. GPs are also sending invites, so you can book in.

    Walk-in availability varies, booking guarantees you a slot, services are open 09:00 – 19:00.

    Walk-in vaccination services

    The vaccination centres providing a walk-in service for first doses are open from 09:00 – 19:00 daily [except Byon Hall and Brentford leisure centre — see below].

    • Brentford leisure centre 658 Chiswick High Rd, Brentford TW8 0HJ [Monday to Thursday]

    Following your walk-in you will then be able to book your second vaccine at 8 weeks 48 hours later using www.nhs.uk

    Second doses

    To help ensure residents get the maximum protection possible, we are bringing forward the date of second vaccines from 12 weeks to 8 weeks.

    If you had a vaccine at a GP service, you will be texted inviting you to attend a new date. If you attended a pharmacy or large vaccination centre and booked your seconded dose through the national booking system www.nhs.uk — you will be texted to invite you to change your second appointment. You will need to cancel the appointment you have and rebook — there are plenty of appointments available to do this.
