EALING healthcare experts will be training vaccinators across the capital this month.

Nursing and midwifery lecturers at the University of West London will prepare volunteers to give injections of COVID-19 vaccines.

The work will also give students from UWL’s College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare (CNMH) a chance to be part of the community effort.

Charmagne Barnes, Dean of the CNMH, said: “This is yet another way in which we can have a real impact.” 

Elsewhere, a UWL fund-raising effort is continuing to support students struggling with the pandemic.

Students launched their COVID-19 Response Appeal last summer and have raised more than £35,000 to date.    

The university was also given 22 laptops from SEGA to be handed to anyone struggling to access suitable technology.
