Westminster Protects Project

Citizens Advice Westminster is interested in your health and wellbeing.  Our Westminster Protects Project is at hand for your concerns.
Ask us if you’ve got concerns about Covid-19, vaccinations, or other health-related issues.  Your adviser can direct you to reliable resources, and our digital adviser can also help , for example, to help you learn how to book appointments or do other things online.

The NHS and gov.uk websites are excellent sources of information:

Here are links on some specific topics:

COVID-19 and vaccinations

Vaccines are the best defence we have against COVID-19 and other respiratory infections such as flu.  Read more here about living safely with respiratory infections (including COVID-19):
