  1. residents in a care home for older adults and their carers (95% now visited)
  2. all those 80 years of age and over
    1. we are proactively contacting anyone who has not yet been vaccinated by telephoning and writing to them.  We are reviewing all GP lists to ensure we have not missed anyone
  3. frontline health and social care workers
  4. all those 75 years of age and over
  5. all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals.
    1. People with the following conditions are automatically deemed clinically extremely vulnerable:
      1. solid organ transplant recipients
      2. people with specific cancers
      3. people with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy
      4. people with lung cancer who are undergoing radical radiotherapy
      5. people with cancers of the blood or bone marrow such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma who are at any stage of treatment
      6. people having immunotherapy or other continuing antibody treatments for cancer
      7. people having other targeted cancer treatments that can affect the immune system, such as protein kinase inhibitors or PARP inhibitors
      8. people who have had bone marrow or stem cell transplants in the last 6 months or who are still taking immunosuppression drugs
      9. people with severe respiratory conditions including all cystic fibrosis, severe asthma and severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
      10. people with rare diseases that significantly increase the risk of infections (such as severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), homozygous sickle cell disease)
      11. people on immunosuppression therapies sufficient to significantly increase risk of infection
      12. problems with your spleen, for example splenectomy (having your spleen removed)

      16. other people who have also been classed as clinically extremely vulnerable, based on clinical judgement and an assessment of their needs. GPs and hospital clinicians have been provided with guidance to support these decisions
    2. If someone considers themselves to be clinically extremely vulnerable but their clinical condition is not included in the list above, they are advised to contact their GP or specialist to discuss.

Our News Newsletter - Feb Edition

 
 



We pleased to announce our February OUR NEWS newsletter is attached or can be read by clicking on this link. This monthly newsletter, created by Neighbourhood Watch Network (the umbrella organisation for Neighbourhood Watch across England and Wales), is for all supporters of Neighbourhood Watch, from households to volunteers, such as scheme Coordinators or Association Leads.

This month we have a look at how to spot a Covid-19 vaccine scam and how to spot a romance scam. We introduce to you our new rural crime section on our website and our new #DrugsKnowMore campaign - a campaign soon to be launched designed by young people for young people. 

In partnership with Co-op Insurance we remind you of the fantastic opportunity available for children to engage with Neighbourhood Watch by designing a treehouse to be built for their community. We also invite Coordinators to attend upcoming workshops, and ask everyone to save the date of 5th – 11th June for Neighbourhood Watch Week 2021.

With all of the above and much more, we hope you enjoy reading our newsletter and would love to hear from you on what you would like to read more of. Please send your suggestions to deborah.waller@ourwatch.org.uk

Surrey Nhw - Simple Guidelines For Protecting Yourself from Online Fraud

 
 


You will no doubt be aware that there has been a considerable increase in fraud due to many of us having to do more business online with so many shops closed during lockdown. This type of fraud is usually given the term 'cybercrime' and covers a wide number of threats to our well-being and finances. Surrey Police and the government issue many Alerts to the public warning us about new scams or the increase of existing ones. Please continue to heed these. In 2020 it was estimated that cybercrime cost the people of Surrey a total of £91m. The figures for the whole of the UK are enormous as they include large corporate crime. The estimated loss to the British economy is £27b - that's billions, not millions.
But there is much we, as individuals, can do to prevent ourselves being the victim of crime.
With so many buzzwords flying about - 'cookies', 'phishing' (pronounced fishing), VPN and so on, it can be very confusing to know what to do.
The UK Neighbourhood Watch organisation have set up "Cyberwatch" to concentrate on this type of crime and are issuing guides for the public to educate them on simple, and usually free, things to do to reduce the risks.
Below are links to 2 guides - understanding the basic terminology, and how to protect family members when they are online.

It's not just online fraud though. There are instances of people receiving phone calls from the police (typically NOT Surrey Police) saying they have arrested someone who had your details on them. A very useful tip is to immediately ask them their name, "collar number" and extension. Ring off. Call 101 and ask to be put through to the officer quoting the name, number and extension given. If genuine, the 101 desk will happily put you through. But in many cases they will not recognise the name or collar number and so you have prevented a potential fraud.

Keep safe and well
Martin Stilwell
Chair, Surrey Neighbourhood Watch Assoc.
