Vaccination Administration and Patient Flow Support - COVID-19 in Wakefield

Job description

Thank you for your interest in a post at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. Every employee at the Trust strives to provide excellent patient experience every single time. We strive to be an excellent employer for every one of our employees from the day they apply for employment with us. We have four core values, developed by our staff, and these are at the heart of everything we do to enable us to deliver our ambitions of excellence. You can find out more about our vision and values from our videos and website, which you can access via this page.

Could you help deliver Covid-19 vaccines? Your NHS needs you.

The first Covid-19 vaccination has been released, with others anticipated to follow shortly. The vaccines are our best defence against the virus alongside effective social distancing, wearing a mask and hand hygiene.

The NHS across West Yorkshire has already begun vaccinating and we are now getting ready to launch the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals vaccination service.

Our vaccination service will be provided from two sites. On the 4th January 2021, we are launching a community vaccination centre at Navigation Walk in Wakefield city centre. This is likely to be in operation 12 hours a days, 7 days a week, where the teams will be vaccinating members of our local community. We shall also be launching a vaccination centre at Pinderfields Hospital, which will operate, initially, for 8 hours every Tuesday- Thursday, to vaccinate health and social care workers employed across Wakefield.

Roles can be offered on a flexible basis, including outside of usual working hours, to fit with your other responsibilities and commitments.

We are calling on colleagues to support our vaccination service through a number of roles: administration support, to welcome individuals arriving for their vaccination, ensure they have provided all the information required to enable them to have their vaccine and to input essential vaccination records accurately; stewards to ensure the flow of our vaccination clinics whilst enabling everyone to remain safe by maintaining social distance whilst accessing the service; and marshalls to help with the external logistics of the clinic to maintain safety and flow. You will be asked to indicate your role preference when making your application (both job descriptions are attached, with the Patient Flow Support available under the Additional Vacancy Specific Document).

You will be key in supporting the vital next phase in the health service’s COVID-19 response. These roles will appeal to individuals who want to make a difference to the health and safety of our workforce and our local communities; who want to “do their bit” in the response to the pandemic and who want to be part of history in the making.

In all roles, appropriate training, supervision and PPE will be provided to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers and patients.

We expect everyone working as part of the Mid Yorkshire team to undertake their role in a manner which embodies the values of the Trust and with the aim of providing an excellent service to everyone who accesses our services.

Assessments for this role are likely to take place in mid January 2021 and we will be holding regular assessments via Microsoft Teams. Please ensure you have access to this software when making your application.

If you have any questions about the role or wish to discuss it in more detail, please contact Jessica Wilson via
