Customers at MyLahore’s flagship restaurant will have the opportunity to take away credible and trusted information at a live question and answer session taking place on Tuesday 24 August from 1-3pm involving local NHS clinical experts.
In a unique link up involving Bradford-based restaurant group MyLahore and the NHS Covid vaccination programme for Bradford District and Craven, people will be able to ask any questions they have about the vaccines to allay any concerns they may have. In particular the NHS is hoping to reach out to younger customers so that they are aware how easy it is to get vaccinated at one of the district’s walk-in clinics without the need for an appointment.
On hand to answer questions will be Rukeya Miah, Deputy Associate Director of Nursing / Senior Midwife at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Dr Mansoor Ali, Consultant Nephrologist also from the Trust. Joining them will be Adiba Rashid, COVID Vaccination Project Coordinator with the Race Equality Network who have been running nationally recognised community engagement sessions to counter misinformation.
This is the second joint venture for the NHS and MyLahore. The first, as part of the programme to work with local employers, saw members of the restaurant’s staff have their vaccinations early in July.
Ishfaq Farooq, Director for MyLahore, said: “We’re looking forward to the event in a relaxed a setting. We hope our customers will feel comfortable asking questions and talking to experts about any concerns they may have. It is important that everybody, whatever community they live and work in, knows enough about the vaccines so they can make an informed decision about whether or not to have it. We are happy to play a part in helping with that and supporting the fight against COVID-19, by providing an opportunity for people to get information they can trust.”
Rukeya Miah, Deputy Associate Director of Nursing / Senior Midwife at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, added: “It’s great to be working with MyLahore again and thank the company for giving us this unique opportunity to hold this event at the restaurant. We’ve been running a number of online question and answer sessions but to do this in a restaurant setting will be a new experience for us all. We hope as many people as possible will come along to ask us questions so that we can provide them with the right information and answer any questions they may have about the vaccines.”
The session, between 1pm and 3pm is being hosted by leading restaurant group MyLahore at its flagship site – 52 Great Horton Road, Bradford BD7 1AL.
