NHS England has now published Operational Guidance: Vaccination of Frontline Health & Social Care Workers.
This confirms that by mid-January, NHS Trusts will establish ‘hospital hubs’ and will be the default provider of Covid-19 vaccinations for “all healthcare and social care workers”. This includes frontline staff in primary eyecare settings.
At this stage:
Employers should read Appendix 1 section 5 “HR, Staff Engagement and Communications” and do what they can to support staff with questions they might have and to help coordinate efforts where contacted to do so
Employed staff do not need to take any further action
Optical sector bodies are working together to support this effort and have pledged to keep their members up-to-date with developments.
