Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Due to the ongoing pandemic, and to help keep you and our colleagues safe we’re following national guidance and minimising face to face contacts. We will continue to support you through video consultation, telephone consultations and virtual clinics and we’ll see you face to face where this is safe, and the most appropriate way to support you in line with the national guidance.

Monthly Feel the Difference Fund Voting

Each year, Virgin Care sets aside £100,000 to fund projects designed, developed and implemented by our colleagues delivering services across the country as part of our commitment that everyone feels the difference.

In the past the fund has been used to purchase additional life-saving equipment like a vital signs monitor for a minor injuries unit, has helped to keep children occupied in waiting rooms with specially-designed activity packs, and funded events where our senior team, frontline colleagues and people who use our services get together to talk about services and co-design solutions to problems.

We know from experience that it’s the people delivering services day-in and day-out who know them best and the Feel the Difference Fund helps them implement the small ideas which make a big difference.

Citizens’ Panel members (asked and above) are invited to give their views on applications in North Kent each month by email, and the Feel the Difference Panel – who decide whether applications receive funding or not – use members’ views as part of the decision process.

We post updates about the final decision the panel made below and in the Citizens’ Panel newsletters.
