Making Vaccination a Condition of Deployment in the Health and Social Care Sector Consultation

Making vaccination a condition of deployment in the health and social care sector consultation. 

On the 9th September the Department of Health and Social Care launched the ‘Making vaccination a condition of deployment in the health and wider social care sector’ consultation. The consultation proposes that, if introduced, requirements would apply to frontline health and care workers, those with face-to face contact with patients through the delivery of services as part of a CQC regulated activity. It would mean that only those workers that are vaccinated could be deployed (or those with a legitimate medical exemption) to deliver those services.

The College of Paramedics has emailed all of its members encouraging them to take part in the consultation, and also to offer the opportunity to share their opinions with the College via completion of a survey by 23:45 on the 4th October 2021. The survey responses received will contribute towards the College of Paramedics consultation submission on behalf of members and the paramedic profession. If any member has not received this email, please go to the Member Login page of our website, log in and check that we have the correct contact details for you.
