NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group launched on 1 April 2020. This followed the merger of the CCGs for West Norfolk, North Norfolk, Norwich, South Norfolk, and Great Yarmouth and Waveney.
Clinical Commissioning Groups are responsible for planning local NHS services and holding contracts with organisations such as hospitals that provide direct patient care.
In order to provide the usual amount of medications to the patients of Norfolk and Waveney, we are asking you to only order what you need when you have seven days or less supply.
If you are able to buy your medications over the counter when making your weekly essential shopping trip please do, this includes purchasing pain relief such as paracetamol and ibuprofen and allergy relief as we have seen evidence that the hayfever season is beginning.
The NHS in Norfolk and Waveney is encouraging local people to keep up the fight against coronavirus (Covid-19) by following the latest Government advice and staying at home.
A new Government campaign launched this week called Stay Home, Save Lives which reinforces the single most important action we can now all take, in fighting coronavirus – is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.
The NHS is “rallying the troops” for the war on coronavirus, with volunteers being called up to help vulnerable people stay safe and well at home.
The nation is looking for up to 250,000 volunteers to help up to 1.5 million people who have been asked to shield themselves from coronavirus because of underlying health conditions.
