Traffic light system for arrivals - 7th May 2021

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has indicated there will be some "opening up" of foreign travel on 17 May - but said it was important to be cautious.

Foreign holidays are currently banned, but a traffic light system of rules is going to be introduced with countries classed as green, amber or red.

Travellers to green countries will not need to isolate on their return, but they will need to take a Covid test.

Arrivals from amber countries will need to quarantine, while red-list countries have the strictest rules, with only UK or Irish nationals allowed to return and they must pay to stay in a government quarantine hotel.

Government is considering traffic light system - 28th March 2021

The government is considering a four-tier traffic light system that could allow people to travel abroad this summer. 

Green list countries would have no travel restrictions attached but those coming from nations on the yellow list would need testing and/or vaccination certificates but no quarantine.

A roadmap out of lockdown - 23rd February 2021


Prime Minister Boris Johnson made a statement to the House of Commons on the roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions in England. In his statement on 22 February, he outlined how lockdown restrictions will be eased in England. 

The full roadmap document is available on the government's website. A simplified table of the steps is available on pages 47-48 of the COVID-19 Response - Spring 2021 document. 

English UK has published a statement in response to the announcement. English UK says that the details of the plans to ease lockdown restrictions across the UK have been widely published in the media and the full roadmap document for England runs to 60+ pages. Below they highlight the following sections at this time: 


  • International travel 

The Department for Transport will lead a successor to the Global Travel Taskforce, with an ambition to develop a framework that can facilitate greater inbound and outbound travel as soon as the time is right, while still managing the risk from imported cases and variants. 

The Taskforce will report to the Prime Minister and work with UK representatives of the travel sector, including airlines and airports. It will report on 12 April, with recommendations aimed at facilitating a return to international travel as soon as is possible, while still managing risk from imported cases and Variants of Concern. Following that, the Government will determine when international travel should resume, which will be no earlier than 17 May.

See page 41 of the full roadmap document for more details. 


  • Social distancing measures

Before 21 June, the Government will complete a review of social distancing measures and other long-term measures that have been put in place to limit transmission. The results of the review will help inform decisions on the timing and circumstances under which rules on 1m+, face masks and other measures may be lifted. The review will also inform guidance on working from home - people should continue to work from home where they can until this review is complete.


  • Asymptomatic testing

It is our understanding from the Department for Education that a new solution will be developed to provide home testing for the staff and students at independent training providers from the end of March. Testing will remain voluntary but recommended. We will confirm details and keep you posted. Before the 31 March, local authorities are offering asymptomatic testing to workers who cannot work from home and wider communities




So Far so Good - 16th February 2021

The Pharmaceutical Journal gave access to its research in order to help healthcare professionals stay informed about an issue of national importance. We thought our students could benefit from the results of this research. 

Everything you need to know about the UK’s COVID-19 vaccination programme (full article)

Extract from the article:

The biggest vaccination programme in the UK’s history began on 8 December 2020 when Margaret Keenan, who was then aged 90 years, was vaccinated at University Hospital, Coventry, with a COVID-19 vaccine manufactured and developed by Pfizer and BioNTech.

By 27 January 2021, more than six million people had received a vaccination, with nearly 450,000 people being given two doses of a vaccine. But how is the programme arranged, and how are phar­macies and the pharmacy profession getting involved?

Who is getting the vaccine first?

The Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), which advises UK health departments on immunisation, updated its prioritisation of patients to receive the vaccine on 2 December 2020.

The first four cohorts to be vaccinated are: residents in a care home for older adults and their carers; all those aged 80 years and over, and frontline health and social care workers; people aged 75 years and over; and everyone aged 70 years and over, and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals.

Which vaccines have been authorised?

On 2 December 2020, the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 became the first COVID-19 vaccine that could be adminis­tered in the UK when it was authorised by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Data from BioNTech and Pfizer sug­gest that it is more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19 when two doses are given.

The MHRA has since authorised a vac­cine manufactured by the University of Oxford and AstraZeneca, which also requires two doses, but can be kept at reg­ular refrigeration temperatures.

Another vaccine, developed by Moderna, has also been approved, but supplies will not be available in the UK until spring 2021.

Other vaccines, such as those manu­factured by Novavax and Janssen, are currently in phase III clinical trials. For more information on the COVID-19 vaccine candidates and trials, read our list of ten things pharmacists should know about COVID-19 vaccines.


NEWEST DEVELOPMENTS - 10th February 2021

10th February 2021


The Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced new the measures in the House of Commons on Tuesday. He also revealed that anyone caught lying to conceal visits to "red list" countries could face up to ten years in prison.

The new scheme was described by Matt Hancock as ‘mission critical’, which will start on February 15.

‘Passengers will only be able to enter the UK through a small number of ports that currently account for the vast majority of passenger arrivals,’ Mr Hancock told the House of Commons. ‘When they arrive they will be escorted to a designated hotel which will be closed to guests who aren’t quarantining, for 10 days, or for longer if they test positive for Covid-19 during their stay.’

What is the "Red List"? (see table below)

A list of countries where mutant variants of Covid-19 are on the rise. 

What is the charge?

  • The  charge is £1,750 per person. All passengers must book and pay for their ‘quarantine package’ online via a booking system, which will go live on Thursday, before they travel.
  • The fee will cover the hotel stay for 10 days in a Government-approved hotel, transport to the accommodation, food and Covid-19 testing.
  • Passengers will not even be allowed a choice of hotels. Mr Hancock said 16 hotels have so far been contracted with 4,600 rooms available but more will be secured in the coming days.

Who has to pay?

  • All UK nationals, Irish nationals or those with UK residence rights, coming back from the countries that are on the “red list”.
  • There will be compulsory tests before they fly. 
  • Tourists and foreign citizens from these countries are not allowed to enter at all.

Which are the 33 countries on the Red List?









The COVID vaccination programme - 22nd January 2021

22nd January 2021

Are the Covid vaccination programmes working? 

Last week, researchers in Israel reported preliminary figures suggesting that people vaccinated there were about 33% less likely to test positive for SARS-CoV-2 than people who had not received a  shot. but scientists say that population-wide effects of immunization will take time to become clear.

Many factors will determine how soon scientists can detect the impact of vaccines on the pandemic. Among them are the extent of vaccine coverage, the effectiveness of shots at preventing disease and infection, and the rate of viral transmission.

Israel and the United Arab Emirates are leading the world in vaccine coverage. The two nations have vaccinated roughly one-quarter of their populations — more than two million people each. Other nations, such as the United Kingdom and Norway, have targeted their vaccination programmes at high-risk groups. Britain has vaccinated more than 4 million people, mostly health-care workers and older people, including those living in care homes; Norway has immunized all residents living in nursing homes, some 40,000 people.

  • Where possible, digital materials will be used instead of handouts.
  • Students will have their own copy of the course book and this will not be shared with others.

Wearing face coverings is now mandatory on public transport and in shops in England.

If you feel unwell and suspect you have COVID-19 symptoms, you must tell us immediately if you are on site or call the school.
