Derbyshire hotel to become vaccination centre

Casa hotel in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, has got the green light to become a vaccination centre from 1 February until the end of June to speed up the Covid-19 vaccine rollout.

The four-silver-AA-star, 100-bedroom property, owned by Steve Perez, has been working with PCT Healthcare.

Perez said: "We have a big car park, lots of space and being a modern building, we are very accessible – including toilets, which is very important to the elderly. Instead of waiting in line on a cold pavement, waiting before and after the vaccination can be done in the warmth, under cover.

"We are used to being a 24-hour operation so that poses no issues to us. We have the resources between us."

Darryl Dethick, head of business transformation at PCT Healthcare, said: "We're delighted to be working with the team at the Casa hotel in Chesterfield along with the team at NHS England to get our Covid vaccination site up and running as soon as possible. It's great to be able to work together and support each other in helping to protect our local community.

"Community pharmacy is really well placed to help look after the health needs of the local population and our pharmacists and teams are really excited about being able to be part of the national vaccination campaign."
