COVID 19 SUPPORT INFO – last updated October 2022
FHCLP is very much aware of the challenges which our community has faced due to CoVid19 in the last two years. The risks for more vulnerable people remain a serious concern.
Please do what you can to keep yourself and others as safe as possible, including taking part in the NHS vaccination and booster programmes.
