Worcestershire County Council has set up Coronavirus web pages to support people in the county. Please go to www.worcestershire.gov.uk/coronavirus for information. If you need replacement care or can provide care work to those who need it, please visit http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/here2help.
Worcestershire County Council has now set up the system for getting PAs booked in for their Covid-19 vaccination. As a direct payment user or PA in Worcestershire, you should have been sent this information directly but if you haven't, please go to the bottom of this page to download the letter from the council which tells you what to do. There are letters for direct payment recipients, PAs and direct payment facilitators. The letters include the links to the booking system. There is also a detailed Frequently Asked Questions document for health and social care workers.
PAs are eligible for free PPE. Please make your request via this weblink: https://capublic.worcestershire.gov.uk/PPESanitiserRequestForm/PPERequestWCCForm.aspx
Requests should be made for 3 months' worth of supplies.
Coronavirus testing is now available for PAs who are showing symptoms of the virus. A new testing site has been opened at Sixways, Worcester. Please ensure you read all the relevant information and complete a testing form before you make the journey. These can be found on our home page of this website.

Worcestershire's Don't Break Now Campaign
Worcestershire County Council's 'Don't Break Now' Campaign are looking for people who have been directly affected by Covid and who are prepared to tell their stories in order to encourage people to continue to follow the rules while the vaccine roll-out takes place.
We have had a good response so far, but would like more people who meet one or more of the following criteria: male, aged 18-30 and/or are BAME.
The main things we want to do are running a radio advertising campaign, film videos of people telling their stories, adverts in Worcester News and adverts on the side of waste collection lorries.
There’s also the potential to be interviewed by the Worcester News and possibly one of the local radio stations.
Participants will not be required to do all of these things, but if you could take part in at least one of these, it would be really helpful.
Anyone who is interested in taking part should email their contact details to email@example.com.
Worcestershire County Council have put together an advice leaflet for people living in the county. You can download it at the bottom of this page.
