Urgent notice: vehicle fires caused by hand sanitiser during hot weather
NHS Property Services has received a number of reports of hand sanitiser being the cause of fires when left in vehicles in hot weather. The alcohol hand sanitiser is becoming heated resulting in flammable vapours being released. These vapours are reaching their ‘flashpoint’ and then ignite in normal air conditions, setting fire to flammable components within the car. Please do not leave hand sanitiser in un-attended vehicles.
Information Re: Flu Vaccinations for patients 50-64 years
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
