Twitter messages: NCL CCG has been asked to share social media materials for practices that use Twitter to communicate with their patients. There are five Tweets, with accompanying images. Links in each Tweet go to the microsite where items such as the animations in different languages are held.
Animations: North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group has produced some animations to encourage people to get their flu vaccinations, one for adults and one for parents and children. The animations are also available with subtitles and will soon be available on the NCL YouTube channel in different languages.
