Professor Patel has also been active through his national role with the University of Oxford in the search for early treatment Covid-19 in the community with both the Principle and Panoramic Trials.
Professor Patel is a huge asset to the Bradford Hindu Council especially in supporting its extensive and vital work in the community. His message for 2022 is for everyone to play their part in helping to keep well, stay healthy and importantly to ensure all Covid19 vaccinations are up to date and not left incomplete. Also to encourage and support all those who have not come forward for their vaccine to come forward to reduce people from becoming serious ill and being hospitalised.
Wishing everyone a very safe and healthy 2022.
