NHS staff no longer top priority for vaccine despite fear of third wave

NHS staff will no longer get the coronavirus vaccine first after a drastic rethink about who should be given priority, it emerged last night.

The new immunisation strategy is likely to disappoint and worry thousands of frontline staff – and comes amid urgent warnings from NHS chiefs that hospitals could be “overwhelmed” in January by a third wave of Covid-19 caused by mingling over Christmas.

Chris Hopson, the chief executive of NHS Providers, said: “If we get a prolonged cold snap in January the NHS risks being overwhelmed. The Covid-19 restrictions should remain appropriately tough.

“Trust leaders are worried about the impact of looser regulations over Christmas.”

Frontline personnel were due to have the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine when the NHS starts its rollout, which is expected to be next Tuesday after the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) approved it on Wednesday.

However, hospitals will instead begin by immunising care home staff, and hospital inpatients and outpatients aged over 80. The new UK-wide guidance on priority groups was issued by the joint committee on vaccination and immunisation (JCVI) amid uncertainty over when the rest of the 5m-strong initial batch of doses that ministers ordered will reach the UK.

NHS personnel will be able to take the vaccine into care homes to immunise residents later this month if, as expected, the MHRA agrees that the batches of 975 doses it comes in can be subdivided and the stability and safety of the drug be maintained.

Dr Chaand Nagpaul, the leader of the British Medical Association, said it backed care home residents getting the jab first. However, that means NHS staff will be left at higher risk of getting infected and potentially dying, he added.

“Doctors and other healthcare staff will recognise the need to vaccinate care home residents and older patients first, but will likely be frustrated at the government’s inconsistent messaging changing from yesterday to today.

“In the first wave, we saw far too many health and social care workers become incredibly sick with Covid – with many tragically dying – and therefore those working on the frontline need to be given the opportunity to get protected early,” he said.

NHS bosses have warned the 800,000 doses that comprise the UK’s first consignment from Pfizer’s manufacturing plant in Belgium may be “the only batch we receive for some time”, raising questions about how soon further supplies will arrive and how long frontline personnel and vulnerable groups will have to wait for their two jabs.

The change in priorities came as NHS Providers, which represents health service trusts in England, warned hospitals would struggle to maintain normal care in January if a fresh spike in infections after Christmas leads to beds again filling up with Covid patients, just as they are trying to manage their winter crisis.

NHS Providers and senior doctors made clear their anxiety that the government’s decision to allow up to three households to mix indoors in England between 23 and 27 December may prove ill-advised and backfire, because people will pass the infection on to vulnerable relatives. They pleaded with the public to exercise caution about how they socialise.

Dr Susan Crossland, the president of the Society for Acute Medicine, which represents hospital doctors, said they shared concerns “about the possibility of a Christmas wave of Covid in January, as well as the potent threat of this combined with ‘normal’ winter pressures exacerbated by cold weather”.

“In my opinion the relaxation of rules at Christmas is crass in the extreme. Combined with the bickering among politicians we have seen in recent days over the tiered system, it further weakens the importance of maintaining safety measures,” she said.

The NHS already being “on a knife-edge” due to intense demand and under-staffing means “it is the responsibility of everyone to limit contact and follow safety measures over the coming weeks and months to avoid mass stress burdening the NHS in the difficult winter months,” Crossland added.

One hospital boss said: “Normally people give their elderly relatives colds and flu and respiratory disease over Christmas and they end up in hospital in January. This year that’s more complicated. [There is a] very necessary relaxation over Christmas as people need a break, but recognise that there will potentially be an impact.” Their trust assumes January will be “really tough”, despite the vaccine’s imminent rollout, they added.

The World Health Organization on Thursday also advised that the threat of a “Christmas wave” emerging just after the new year should make people think twice before using the festive break from restrictions to attend gatherings with other people.

“We are looking, many of us, towards the holiday season, towards Christmas, whether it is called a third wave or a Christmas wave,” said Dr Hans Kluge, the WHO’s regional director for Europe. “The question we have to ask ourselves if we are going to come together, or we are thinking about an activity during which transmission can happen, we have to ask the question, is it really necessary?

“Because if the restrictive measures are being eased and the basic public health measures are not adhered to, whatever the country in the region or globally, absolutely there will be again an increase because the vaccine will come too late for this winter.”

A government spokesperson said: “This Christmas, families and friends can meet up in a limited and cautious way thanks to a balanced and workable set of rules. We agreed these UK-wide measures based on scientific and clinical advice on how best to minimise the risks, and following Sage advice we have introduced strengthened local restrictions to protect the progress gained during national restrictions and continue to suppress the virus.”

Meanwhile, Prof Jonathan Van-Tam, England’s deputy chief medical officer, has raised the prospect of people needing annual vaccination against coronavirus, in the same way they get immunised against winter flu. It is important to have further Covid vaccines available in case revaccination is required, he told the BBC.

“It is really unknowable at this point. But it is very much something that I see now as one of the goals only just over the horizon to get my head around, what if – and if – we will at any point in the future need to think about revaccination,” he said.

Truth behind Matt Hancock’s ‘step-grandad’ who died from Covid

Revealed: Matt Hancock’s ‘step-grandfather’ whose Covid death brought Health Secretary close to tears in Parliament

  • On Tuesday Matt Hancock told Parliament his step-grandfather died from Covid
  • He said ‘Derek’ had passed away last month after catching the virus in Liverpool 
  • Health Secretary was close to tears breaking the news to MPs in the Commons
  • He drew on personal experience to highlight the toll Covid had taken on the UK
  • MailOnline can reveal Mr Hancock’s relative is Derek Johnston, who died at 77
  • Mr Johnston was the husband of Hancock’s mother Shirley’s husband’s ex-wife  

By Nick Craven Stewart Whittingham For Mailonline www.dailymail.co.uk

This is Derek Johnston, the ‘step-grandfather’ whose death brought Health Secretary Matt Hancock close to tears when he paid an emotional tribute to him in Parliament on Tuesday.

Mr Hancock, 42, was wrapping up a highly-charged debate on the Covid lockdown tiers when he referred to Mr Johnston as his ‘step-grandfather, Derek’ who died last month of the virus.

In fact, Derek was not Mr Hancock’s step-grandfather and their relationship, MailOnline has discovered, was more complex than that. 

Former construction worker Derek, 77, was the second husband of Mr Hancock’s stepfather, Bob Carter’s ex-wife, Marjorie.

Mr Carter married the Health Secretary’s mother Shirley in 1984 after she split from Mr Hancock’s father Michael when the MP was six years old. 

Mr Carter had been married before to Marjorie Slater, but after their divorce, she married Derek Johnston in 1983. 

The fractured and complex family background of the Cheshire-born MP has been thrust into the spotlight by the surprising intervention of Mr Hancock.

The family tree shows how Mr Hancock and Mr Johnston are distantly related. The complex nature of his family background was highlighted by the surprising intervention of Mr Hancock

In his speech on Tuesday, Mr Hancock told the Commons: ‘We talk a lot of the outbreak in Liverpool, and how that great city has had a terrible outbreak and got it under control.

‘This means more to me than I can say, because last month my step-grandfather Derek caught Covid there and on 18 November he died.

‘In my family, as in so many others, we’ve lost a loving husband, a father, a grandfather to this awful disease.

‘So from the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you to everyone in Liverpool for getting this awful virus under control.

‘It’s down by four-fifths in Liverpool, that’s what we can do if we work together in a spirit of common humanity.

‘We’ve got to beat this, we’ve got to beat it together.’

Mr Johnston married Marjorie (above) in 1983 after she split from Mr Hancock’s step-father 

Mr Hancock’s father Michael, 74, told MailOnline of Derek: ‘He was older me, he was in a home and he had Alzheimers – the usual story. It was just a few weeks ago.’

Asked if the family had managed to see Derek before he died, Michael said: ‘You know that it is like with his dreadful disease, it is very restricting.

‘It is not my side of the family.’ 

When pointed out that his son was upset talking about Derek’s death in the Commons, Michael added: ‘Matt wears his heart on his sleeve. He is affected by these things.’

Speaking from his home in Tarporley, Cheshire, he went on: ‘My son is the health secretary trying to do a job against a constant barrage of criticism and you cannot appreciate the amount of energy he has.

‘The amount of intellect he has, and he is far cleverer than me, that he puts all this into it.

‘And from my perspective all I see is people moaning all the time.’

Referring to Mr Hancock’s public mention of Derek, Michael said: ‘Presumably it is highlighting the fact that this disease is affecting everybody, nobody comes above it.’

Asked about Derek’s death, Mr Hancock’s mother Shirley said: ‘It’s very sad.’ 

When asked if her husband Bob was related to Derek, she added: ‘Yes, we’re all in a big family.’ 

Derek – who worked for construction giant Kier in the north-west for many years – suffered from dementia in later life.

On a tribute page on the ‘much loved’ website, he is fondly remembered by his widow Marjorie and described as ‘a much-loved, devoted husband, dad, brother, uncle, grandad and friend.

‘Derek will always be remembered for his kindness, his loyalty, generosity and his quirky sense of humour.’

In his speech, Mr Hancock told the Commons the outbreak in Liverpool ‘means more to me than I can say because last month my step-grandfather Derek caught Covid there and died’ 

Donations in his name are invited for the Willowbrook Hospice in St Helens, and four days ago, Bob Carter made a donation, with the Health Secretary and his wife Martha also pledging a sum on Tuesday, the day of his speech in the Commons.

Matthew John David Hancock was born on October 2, 1978 in Chester to businessman Michael Hancock and then wife Shirley Hills.

But by 1982, his father had left Shirley, Matthew and his elder sister Emily to marry Vera Atkin in Chester, who already had a daughter, Katherine from a previous relationship.

The following year, Vera gave birth to Matthew’s half-brother Christopher Hancock, now aged 37.

In October 1984, Mr Hancock’s mother married company director Robert Carter, and the pair went on to found Border Business Systems, an early software company in the north-west. 

Later, Mr Hancock, who attended the prestigious £16,500-a-year King’s School, Chester, and won a first in PPE from Exeter Oxford, and a Masters in Economics at Cambridge, would work briefly for the firm.

Border Business Systems is said to have pioneered the ‘address management’ technology which allows people to enter their postcode and choose from a list of addresses.

From 2000 to 2005, father-of-three Mr Hancock worked as an economist for the Bank of England, and soon his meteoric rise through the Conservative Party would begin, becoming a Secretary of State aged just 39. 

A spokesman for Mr Hancock declined to comment. 

Sandy Park won’t be a coronavirus vaccination site, council confirms – watch this space Owl

But there seems to be a bit of confusion or a lack of communication (Western Morning News reports the Sandy Park choice), obviously “work in progress” –  Owl

 “A system has been approved and the NHS are leading on the subject and not completely up to speed on what they plan to do. Sandy Park is to be used as a one of the major sites in the county, the last thing I knew.”

Jamie Hawkins www.devonlive.com 

Sandy Park will not be used as a mass coronavirus vaccination site, Devon County Council has tonight confirmed.

Earlier today, Cllr Roger Croad – Cabinet Member for Community, Public Health, Transportation and Environmental Services – confirmed that detailed planning is underway in Devon for two mass sites to deliver the vaccine.

Cllr Croad said that in addition to the two sites, there will be more localised sites as well, and all of which will be supplemented by the delivery of vaccines in vulnerable settings by local primary care teams.

Speaking at Thursday’s meeting, Cllr Croad said that while the NHS are leading on the roll-out of the vaccine in the county, the last thing he knew was that Sandy Park, the home of the Exeter Chiefs located just off the M5 in Exeter, was going to be used as one of the major sites in the county.

However, Devon County Council has tonight confirmed that after consideration, Sandy Park will not be used as a vaccine site.

A spokesman said: “Sandy Park was one of a number of sites being considered. However, this has now been ruled out. “

Having been asked by Cllr Rob Hannaford to report on pressing issues around vaccinations, Cllr Croad said in his report: “Detailed planning is underway in Devon for Covid-19 Mass Vaccination so a local vaccination programme can commence as soon as the vaccines are authorised for us.

“Two mass vaccination site have been identified by the Devon CCG in additional to more local primary care network sites all of which will be supplemented by the delivery of vaccines in vulnerable settings by local primary care teams. Devon County Council is in active in discussions to ensure that our health and social care staff can be vaccinated.

“There is a comprehensive workforce plan to ensure sufficient staff can safely support the programme, and not negatively impact other services. We expect existing vaccinators, newly recruited and trained personnel, and volunteers to all have a role to play.”

He added: “A system has been approved and the NHS are leading on the subject and not completely up to speed on what they plan to do. Sandy Park is to be used as a one of the major sites in the county, the last thing I knew.”

Steve Brown, Public Health Director (Designate) for Devon, added: “Mass centres are being planned but that is just one route for vaccines, so there will be other routes of going into care homes, GPs, more localised sites, but the undertaking cannot be underestimated as it’s vaccinated the population twice, as its two doses.

“It is a huge task and even when we get the vaccine, the logistics of vaccinating everyone won’t happen quickly but will take months to get through the process for everyone. It is a significant undertaking, not to be underestimated.”

More than 50 NHS England hospitals are ready to start administering the approved Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine from next week, with Derriford Hospital in Plymouth on the list.

The UK has so far ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine, enough to immunise 20 million people.

Party with one councillor registers one of UK’s biggest political donations

Even in an era when British politics seems endlessly surprising, this was an eye-opener: one of the biggest individual political donations this year has gone not to the Conservative party or to Labour but to a tiny group in Surrey with just one councillor.

Peter Walker www.theguardian.com 

The news came in the quarterly update of donations produced by the Electoral Commission. Amid a list dominated by unions and businesses handing sums to the big parties was notice of £204,888.20 going to the Hersham village society.

It is fair to say that outside the somewhat niche political circles of Elmbridge borough council, most people will not have heard of this particular party. One of a string of village-based independent groups that run Elmbridge council in coalition with the Liberal Democrats, it has for decades represented the interests of a small commuter-belt outpost best known, if at all, as the home of the punk group Sham 69, who immortalised it in their 1979 hit Hersham Boys.

The money came in the will of Richard Greenwood, a Hersham man who died last year aged 84, seemingly without any living relatives. The bequest came as a surprise even to his local party.

“I can’t even say I knew him, actually,” said Roy Green, the party’s one councillor. “He only made out his will about three days before he died, and he left big sums of money to various organisations, not just us but a local hospice and the MCC.

“He left over £1m in all. No one knew he was that rich – he lived in this little ex-council house. I think one of our committee had lived opposite him and helped him in the past. He must have decided we should benefit.”

There is only one snag: as well as being the Hersham village society’s only councillor, Green, who has represented it since 1979, is likely to be its last. “I’m up for re-election in May, and I actually don’t think we’ll even be putting anyone up for election, as most of us have just got too old to carry on,” he said. “My brain is willing, but physically it’s getting difficult. Last night I had a three-hour council meeting, sitting in my office, staring at a screen, and my back was killing me. And that was the third long meeting this week.

“On Monday, I went to the funeral of one of our members who was in his 80s, and he’d been with us for over 30 years. But we don’t have younger people coming forward.”

Luckily, the money is still being put to good use. Green said the society was “more of an amenity and social group”, although it has to register as a party because members stand for election, meaning Greenwood’s bequest was registered as a donation.

It provides volunteers to run the local community centre, which will now get a revamp, along with funds for activities such as a youth group and a Saturday night cinema club. Green described the cinema club as “mainly for older people, so they can get out at least once a week”.

The society is in the process of handing most of its unexpected windfall to other local groups, including the Brownies, a scheme to help homeless people, a charity housing former racing greyhounds, and Hersham in Bloom, which plants flowerbeds.

Up to now, Green admitted, the tiny party/community group had tried to keep its new wealth quiet so as not to be inundated with requests. It was a nice problem to have, he added. “It was a lovely sum of money, a complete surprise, I can tell you. So we’re giving donations where we can. There’s not much money going to these small organisations, it normally goes to the bigger ones.”

Ex-councillor defends PPE contracts after buying homes in Devon and Cornwall

A businessman who won £276m in PPE contracts has defended his work during the coronavirus pandemic after he purchased properties in Devon and Cornwall.

Businessman Steve Dechan is the owner of Gloucestershire-based Platform-14, which specialises in medical devices for people with chronic pain.

A national newspaper has reported that despite the company making a loss of close to £500,000 last year, he was awarded a £120m contract to supply masks in March, followed one in June worth £156m to supply gowns and masks.

According to the Sunday Times, Mr Dechan has bought a £250,000 holiday home in Cornwall and a £50,000 house for his parents in Exeter to add to his £1.5 million, grade II listed property in the Cotswolds.

It was also reported that he paid himself £500,000.

Mr Dechan, a former Conservative councillor on Stroud Town Council, denied he had benefited from his political affiliations, insisting that it was done ‘on merit’.

It has been reported there was not a competitive tender for either of the contracts awarded to his company.

In a series of exchanges on Twitter, Mr Dechan claimed: “What businessman delivers ahead of schedule, Below budget on contracts he has been doing for 8 years. makes money, pays his taxes in U.K & creates more jobs, pays his team bonuses and didn’t cheat.”

A National Audit Office report revealed that the Government had established a fast-track VIP lane to purchase billions of pounds of PPE from little-known companies with political contacts in the Conservative party.

Roughly one in 10 suppliers processed through the VIP channel – 47 out of 493 – obtained lucrative PPE contracts, compared to less than one-in-a-hundred suppliers that came through the ordinary lane.

Mr Dechan told Stroud News that his company had not benefited from this.

“We had no VIP or fast track. No help,” he claimed.

“It was done on merit, great price, great PPE delivered in amazing time.

“How many front line workers did we protect? Answer: hundreds of thousands.

“We didn’t and still don’t know if it was a competitive tender or not, we still assume it was. That’s a question for the buyers.”

He also told the Sunday Times that he had done ‘very, very well out of the pandemic’, but defended the work he had done to battle Covid-19, saying that the PPE he had delivered helped ‘millions of people in pain’.

Mr Dechan was contacted through his company Platform-14 for comment but did not respond to DevonLive and CornwallLive’s enquiries.

‘Once in a lifetime’ redevelopment for stately home approved

A ‘once in a lifetime’ chance to redevelop the 86-acre estate and stately home at Winslade Park to create a destination in the region with 2,000 new jobs has been given the green light.

Daniel Clark www.devonlive.com

East Devon District Council’s planning committee on Wednesday backed Burrington Estates’ plans for the Clyst St Mary site which will convert the estate into a modern mixed-use campus of office and employment facilities in a parkland setting with associated residential development and on-site recreational facilities.

The £80m vision includes outline permission for up to 94 residential units split over two parts of the site, improved sport pitches for football and cricket, tennis courts and provision of parkland recreation routes.

Full permission for the conversion of the existing buildings into high quality, multi-let office space at Winslade Manor and Winslade House, an extension to Brook House for employment use and an extension to the leisure facilities to create improved facilities including a new gym, spa facilities and beauty salons, and a restaurant/café and high end business club was also granted.

Despite opposition from some local residents and parish councils and that the scheme would be a departure from the Local Plan, councillors backed the officer recommendation to approve the plans almost unanimously, with two abstentions.

Development Manager Chris Rose told the committee that this was a balanced decision, as the scheme was contrary to the Local Plan, provided lower levels of affordable housing than policy requires, part of the car park is in the flood zone, and some housing will be built on agricultural land.

But he added: “That needs to be balanced between employment benefits of this, as will be highly skilled office jobs and not one you often see in East Devon, a high standard of refurbishment to the listed buildings, community access to the parkland and sports pitches that are being brought back into use and access to swimming pool for the school. The view of officers is the benefits outweigh the harm.”

However, Gaeron Kayley, chairman of the Save Clyst St Mary Residents’ Association, called for the committee to reject the plans. He said: “We believe the developers bought the site to manipulate the planning system to get housing and offices on the site that is well outside the Local Plan.

“They have ignored the Neighbourhood Plan and the Local Plan and this all about how much profit they can get out of the site, and the community isn’t getting enough out of the site. This undermines the integrity of the Local Plan that we fought so hard for and the 200 plus objections.”

Linda Trim added that approval would result in harm to the asset you are trying to protect, while Carole Spearman said that to add a significant extra levels of traffic to the area was misguided and not sustainable.

But Andrew Clancy said it was a once in a generational opportunity to create something outstanding for the community, while Clyst St Mary School said that they were in favour of the plans.

Matthew Bennett, from Burrington Estates, called for the scheme to be approved, saying: “We pride ourselves in quality, style, design and customer service, and will provide this approach to provide beautiful homes for many Clyst St Mary residents, new and old.

“The overriding principle to bring back the building into commercial use and we want to create a vibrant new business hub for East Devon which deserves the stunning manor. This will help create 2,000 new jobs, ensure the 94 dwellings are low density, and we have offered £2m for social housing despite not having to.

“It is providing 80 acres back into the Clyst St Mary community, the leisure club will be refurbished to exceptional standards, and cricket and football pitches for local use, and picnics and kite flying will be welcome.

“We have done this to create a destination that the region can be proud of, generating over £100m of economic activity and community activity. It is the most significant opportunity for the district in recent years and warrants the strongest possible support, as it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to redevelop Winslade Park properly, so please let us fulfil it.”

Cllr Mike Howe, who represents the Clyst St Mary ward, said that the application had both positives and negatives attached to it.

He said: “There are positives and it will bring the listed buildings into sustainable use, it brings jobs back to the local economy, and it brings back the sports provision, but it is balanced against the downsides.”

Cllr Howe said that there was concerns about what may happen to the fragile transport infrastructure around the village and at the roundabout if 2,000 more cars were added to the road and the queues of traffic trying to get on the A376 will reoccur, but that can happen today anyway as per the current planning permission for the site.

Cllr Philip Skinner, recommending the scheme be approved, said: “There are many benefits that come with the application. This site has changed between different owners and they have found it hard to wade through the treacle to find something that works for the community and to make a profit and for it to stand up. There are pros and cons for this and it’s not the perfect application but we need to move forward.”

Cllr Tony Woodward said that the economic benefits should not be underestimated, and while he was concerned about the transport, it didn’t prevent a reason for refusal, while Cllr Geoff Pook added that a site with this many benefits will have some problems, but the trade-off was acceptable.

Backing the plans, Cllr Ollie Davey said: “Overall I think that the scheme is just about acceptable as it stands,” while Cllr Bruce de Saram described it as a ‘mixture of the good, the bad, and the ugly’, but that there were lots of benefits.

Councillors voted by 10 votes to none, with two abstentions, to approve the plans, after more than two and a half hours of debate, with work set to begin of the office redevelopments early in 2021.

A separate reserved matters application will still need to be submitted and approval for the housing element of the scheme.

After the meeting, Burrington Estates Group Managing Director, Mark Edworthy said: “We are excited to move ahead with this unique proposition which we believe will be a project for the region to be proud of.

“Winslade Park will deliver lasting benefits not only for businesses and the local economy through the creation of much-needed employment opportunities, but for the neighbouring community too. The South West has always had an edge for those wanting a better work/life balance, and Winslade Park provides the perfect lifestyle choice. I would like to thank EDDC and local councillors for their support.”

Co-Founder Paul Scantlebury added: “The development of Winslade Park is being handled with great sensitivity and respect for its heritage.

“It has been dubbed a ‘hidden gem’ concealed from view for far too long. We are pleased to breathe new life into this superb asset for the region and deliver on its potential as an idyllic location for office workers, homeowners and the wider community.”

The property has sat empty for six years since Friends Life’s departure, but the site has a chequered history with development proposals, with campaign group Save Clyst St Mary from Inappropriate Development concerned against previous housing plans for the site.
