Covid vaccination: As outlined in the Government report “Living with COVID” published Feb 2022 Professional bodies, the Royal Colleges, the Chief Medical Officer, Chief Nursing Officer and others consider it is a professional responsibility for health and care staff to be vaccinated for COVID. We support this and it is our preference that all of our staff are fully vaccinated for COVID in order to keep themselves safe, our patients and our colleagues.
