UHB is committed to ensuring the safety of all our staff and patients. In order to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the Department of Health and Social Care has formally announced that a CQC registered person can only employ or otherwise engage individualsin regulated activities in England who have face to face contact with patients or service users if they are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 on 1 April 2022. UHB is obliged to comply with this statutory obligation. The government policy takes into account specific exemptions to the requirement to be vaccinated and we recommend that you visit website for further information on this matter. Where you are applying for roles where some or all of your potential duties fall within the scope of the health and social care mandatory vaccination regulations, you should be aware that it will be a condition of your employment with UHB that you have received the 1st and 2nd dose of the Covid-19 vaccination and have provided evidence of this (unless an exemption applies) by the relevant dates, being 3 February 2022 for the 1st dose and 31 March 2022 for the 2nd dose. If you are medically exempt from vaccination, we require evidence of formal medical exemption through the NHS COVID Pass process before UHB can confirm acceptance of your medically exempt status. If you would like further details on the new rules around mandatory vaccinations, these can be provided during the recruitment process.


COVID-19 vaccination remains the best way to protect yourself, your family, your colleagues and of course our patients from the virus when working in our healthcare settings.

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 at where you can also find out more about how to access vaccination.

Please note that staff recruited from outside of the NHS will usually be appointed at the bottom of the pay band.
