Vaccine as a Condition of Deployment – Resources

This week we hosted a webinar for practice managers with Capsticks solicitors on the latest position regarding vaccination as a condition of deployment.

As you will be aware, the government has suspended the implementation of the requirement for patient-facing staff to be vaccinated and is to consult on revoking the regulations. This has prompted a number of questions about what happens next and how employers and employees should proceed.

The session was useful in addressing these questions and Capsticks have shared two pieces of guidance to assist which can be downloaded below:

Accelerate Leadership Programme for GPs from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Backgrounds

Colleagues who experience racism and discrimination are often absent from senior roles and management structures within the NHS. We want to make a small step towards addressing this by offering a programme designed to support you in accelerating your career and personal development as part of the Humberside LMCs’ Wellbeing Strategy, funded by NHSEI.

The programme is available to colleagues from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds to support personal and professional development, taking into account the additional barriers you may face due to ethnicity, race, and discrimination.

The modules will be delivered virtually over 3 separate days on the following dates:

  • Day 1: Tuesday, 15th March
  • Day 2: Tuesday, 22nd March
  • Day 3: Thursday, 31st March

Full details of the programme can be found on our website.
