Our clinical director’s Dr Asif Imran and Dr Narinder Kullar have worked very hard to make it possible for as many patients as possible to be vaccinated.  

Dr Kullar in particular devotes many hours each day to ensure the success of this venture from liaising with me regarding the rota to having conversations with the CCG on vaccine delivery.  He sits with the site managers to reconcile pinnacle entries with the PSD forms and is deeply involved in the TRI-PCN collaboration efforts.
Dr Imran brings his unique skill set of managing the staff and keeping up the morale.  He ensures each staff is looked after, providing us with succulent lunches and creates a very warm inclusive environment where we all thrive.  He is an outstanding roving GP with second to none people’s skills.
We have a wonderful complement of staff, from many practices in Havering, supporting us in this effort.  Some have to be mentioned as they have been with us since the beginning from the delightful Sammy Schaad to the wonderful Joyce Sarson – our two main Lead vaccinators and of course Debbie Williams our shining star with whom we cannot survive.  She controls the front end with ease and flair and has a warm presence which we all enjoy.  There are many more who all deserve a mention.
Then there is me, Farhana.  I do what I can and it’s all very enjoyable – preparing rota, sometimes food, trying to match the right admin with vaccinators, setting training sessions on pinnacle.  All good fun and a once in a lifetime experience. 
Our volunteers are our backbone, managed by Rebecca Mazrreku, Centre Operations Manager, Havering Volunteer Centre. 
For all its faults, this COVID-19 has brought a community closer together and has shown us all that we are surrounded by warm, joyous, caring people who are 100% committed in saving our precious population.
