Vaccination as a Condition of Deployment UPDATED

Publication date: February 2022

As you may have seen in the news, the government now plans to drop the legal requirement for patient-facing staff to be vaccinated against Covid-19. This had been due to come into force on 1 April 2022. There will now be further consultation and a vote to be passed into legislation. 

A new NHS England and NHS Improvement letter (31 January) advises that employers should now not go ahead with serving notice of termination to employees affected by the VCOD regulations.

It also asks that the live SITREP request due for submission on 2 February still be completed with the exception of the details in relation to service impact, which are no longer required.
