As part of our continued response to COVID19, we are closely following Department of Health and Social Care's (DHSC) guidance and the government’s proposed legislation.  This is expected to make full COVID19 vaccination a condition of employment in all NHS roles which have face-to-face contact with service users from 1 April 2022.  This also means that by 3 February 2022 all such staff will need to have had their first COVID19 vaccination.  Should the legislation come into force, and should your role be identified as being within the scope of the legislation, you will be required to provide evidence of your vaccination status or a legitimate exemption from these requirements as a condition of your employment.
