The Government had passed legislation requiring vaccination as a condition of deployment which was due to come into place from 1st April 2022. However, on 31st January 2022, the Secretary of State announced that this is being revoked. The government has since announced that it will bring forward the regulations to revoke vaccination as a condition of deployment. The revocation of the regulations will come into force on 15th March 2022 and this means that there will now be no legal requirement for staff to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 from 1st April 2022.

Whilst this is no longer a condition of employment, UHP NHS Trust strongly recommend that you are vaccinated against Covid-19 and full vaccination remains the best line of defence in order to protect yourself, your colleagues and your family.
