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 is vaccinating patients against coronavirus which is our best defence against the virus alongside effective social distancing, wearing a mask and washing your hands. We have had a very successful recruitment campaign which has enabled us to vaccinate people as quickly as possible, and 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, midwives, pharmacy and dental professionals, and healthcare scientists. We are continuing to recruit registered health care professionals to take consent, undertake clinical assessments or act as clinical supervisors. You could be working in any of the follow settings:

  • ·        Vaccine centres in Southampton, Portsmouth, Basingstoke or Newport
  • ·        Local vaccination sites in primary care across Hampshire and Isle of Wight
  • ·        Community Pharmacies

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.
