Whilst COVID-19 vaccination is not currently a condition of employment, we do encourage our staff to get vaccinated. We will be checking the vaccination status of all new starters so that we can manage individual and environmental risks, and so that we can support those who may be undecided about vaccination.
If you are unvaccinated, there is helpful advice and information available by searching on the NHS England website where you can also find out more about how to access the vaccination. There is currently Government consultation underway which will determine whether some new employees may need to be vaccinated.
