Your local Hampshire and Isle of Wight NHS and social care needs you

We are now recruiting to help deliver Covid-19 vaccines across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight  

The NHS in Hampshire and Isle of Wight has started vaccinating patients against coronavirus which is our best defence against the virus alongside effective social distancing, wearing a mask and washing your hands. More sites will start across the area over the coming weeks and months as the programme ramps up.

Vaccinating people as quickly as possible will require recruiting lots more staff, to ensure that the NHS can continue to provide other vital services that our patients are relying on.

Parliament recently changed the law to allow a wider group of people to undertake training to deliver vaccines. This includes many allied health professionals, pharmacy and dental professionals, and healthcare scientists – as well as others with first aid qualifications who can complete appropriate training.

We are therefore recruiting to a range of roles:

  • Healthcare assistant - Immunisations 
  • Seasonal flu and pandemic Immuniser 
  • Registered health care professional  - Immunisations 
  • Registered health care professional  clinical supervisor - Immunisations 
  • GPs
  • Front of house reception and administration 
  • Vaccine administration support 
  • Vaccine Operation Centre administration
  • Vaccine Operation Centre Team Leaders

Have you recently left the NHS and are considering supporting the COVID-19 work? Would you like to do some temporary work in addition to your normal job or responsibilities? Do you have no previous experience in the NHS or social care but would like to support the vaccination programme?

We are looking for registered nurses, midwives or registered` healthcare care professionals to work at band 5 and 6 level. Are you already a trained peer vaccinator, or would you like to be trained to provide Covid-19 vaccinations? Many other registered health professionals can also be trained to support this programme, even if you don’t normally use this skill in your regular practice.

We are also looking for people who can help with a variety of administration work to ensure the smooth running of the vaccine centres.

There are opportunities for experienced health care assistants and trained first aiders to receive full immunisation training to deliver the vaccine under clinical supervision.  

Registered GPs will be supporting practices to deliver vaccines in their local hubs and care homes.

We need people to work in a variety of locations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight set up to vaccinate eligible groups of people. You will be employed on a flexible basis, paid for the hours that you work and have the opportunity to work a variety of different shift lengths and patterns. Vaccine centres will operate from 8am-8pm, 7 days per week.  In all roles, appropriate training, supervision and PPE will be provided to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers and patients. 

Training and development

The Covid vaccination workforce development pack contains all the information needed to ensure that you will be fully trained and competent to undertake any role within the programme that you have suitable skills and experience for.

By completing this Training Needs Analysis, we can also organise appropriate face to face training for vaccinators. Please note this training is only suitable if you meet the person specification requirements for the vaccinator role (ie NVQ/QCF level 3 in a relevant health or care subject, an equivalent level of work experience, or advanced first aid training) or you are a Registered Healthcare Professional (NMC,HCPC,GMC) without previous intra-muscular injection training.
