Alliance Healthcare Service Centre Opens COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic

Thanks to a joint initiative between Wigan Council and the NHS Greater Manchester Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), some of our team members based at Leigh Service Centre received their first COVID-19 vaccination whilst at work.


Four health professionals attended the one day clinic to administer the Pfizer vaccine to 30 team members, who were delighted that they were able to receive their first jab and that it was available to them at their place of work. 


Fran Gray, Warehouse Operations Manager, who led the activity and ensured the smooth running on the day said: “This has been hugely beneficial for our team members that do not have their own transportation, and they have been supported by people they know.”


Commenting on the vaccine clinic Zak Patel, Leigh Service Centre Manager, said: “It’s been fantastic that we have been able to offer the vaccination to some of our team through this one day event.


“Earlier in the year we worked with the council to offer COVID-19 testing to our team and, like the vaccine, it was hugely appreciated.


“We have a good relationship with the local council and we’re happy to work with them on initiatives such as this. I’m also a member of the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce which has helped to strengthen our relationships with businesses in the area and Wigan Council.”


Following the success of the vaccine clinic, the council is now looking to roll out the Leigh model to other businesses in the area.
