Council holds virtual Covid Advice Panel

TOWER HAMLETS Council is holding a “live virtual discussion and Q&A session”, starting at 7pm on Wednesday, 17th February. The Council says that this is an opportunity to “ask Mayor John Biggs and a panel of health experts about Covid-19 vaccinations and share any concerns.”

The panel of health experts includes Deputy Mayor Cllr Rachel Blake, who is the Cabinet Member for Adults, Health and Wellbeing, and Dr Somen Banerjee, who heads up Public Health for the Council. From outside the Council come Professor Kevin Fenton, Public Health England’s National Director for Health and Wellbeing, and Dr Anwar Ali MBE.  It is not immediately obvious who Dr Anwar Ali is, and it may be that the guest is actually local GP and former Conservative candidate for Mayor of Tower Hamlets Dr Anwara Ali MBE.

Registering to attend the meeting is very easy. During registration, you will be asked to put a question to the panel. You can ask a question about the vaccine – or you can ask Executive Mayor John Biggs to explain why he was on walkabout during lockdown. It may well be that the health experts on the panel will think that it will boost public confidence if the Executive Mayor does indeed give an answer.
