•Directing NHS trusts to ensure they make vaccines readily available to staff and record why those who choose to opt out of the programme do so
•Writing to doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers reminding them of their professional duty to protect patients by being vaccinated
•Setting up a new National Emergency Pressure Panel to provide independent clinical advice on system risk and an appropriate regional and national response
•The biggest expansion in training for A&E consultants ever with hundreds more doctors over the next four years and other healthcare staff
