Independent providers of health/social care or care support services in Lincolnshire are being asked to ensure they supply their details so that they can be booked in for the covid-19 vaccination.
The request comes from NHS Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, and is designed to ensure that anyone working as a provider of health/social care or care support services – whether contracted, non-contracted or self-employed – is in a position to receive their vaccination.
“We are very keen to make sure that all frontline staff, including both clinical and operational staff who are in direct contact with patients through clinical or administrative duties, are able to get the vaccination as soon as possible,” explains Sarah-Jane Mills, Chief Operating Officer, NHS Lincolnshire CCG.
Anyone nominating themselves or their staff through this route will be required to provide evidence of their qualifying occupation – in health or social care.
For organisations who employ a significant number of staff, the CCG is happy to receive the required information via email instead – this should be sent to email@example.com, and this address is also featured on the webpage above.
For organisations that already treat patients under contract from the CCG, please check with your employer before completing the form as your details may already be on file. In social care a number of independent providers and individuals are engaged in supporting people in Lincolnshire. It is important that you also take up the opportunity to be vaccinated.
“We are busy vaccinating people in the four priority groups as outlined by the Government, which means we want to reach as many frontline workers as possible, including those working for independent providers,” adds Sarah-Jane. “We appreciate that some staff will be performing their duties in non-contact roles from home – they will be called with the rest of the population in due course and we would ask for their patience in the meantime.”
Information submitted either via the form on the CCG’s website or via the email address above (also available via the website) will only be stored and used for the purpose of vaccination, and will then be destroyed.
