Our approach 

In 2020/21 our team continued to support the response to the Covid-19 pandemic. From October 2020 to March 2021 this included helping to establish and operate the Programme Management Office (PMO) for the London Covid-19 vaccination programme, with a focus on planning, launching and supporting delivery to those aged 75 or older and/or clinically extremely vulnerable in the region.

In addition to providing programme management support, the team was also focused on supporting NHS staff wellbeing across the programme, including co-ordinating wellbeing activities and “Time to Talk”. At PPL we talk often about the fact that there is so much important work to do in the areas we support and that we are privileged to be a part of it.

Our impact

We are very proud to have been able to support the regional vaccination effort in this way, working with a large programme as a small part of the delivery of three million vaccinations across London, including to the most vulnerable in our society.

The impact of the establishment of the PMO for London was also felt more broadly. The mobilisation plan was shared to help with the plans of other areas across the UK and support the rapid setup of vaccination efforts elsewhere.
