Barts Health is one of the largest NHS trusts in the country, and one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers.
The Barts Health group of NHS hospitals is entering an exciting new era on our improvement journey to becoming an outstanding organisation with a world-class clinical reputation. Having lifted ourselves out of special measures, we now have the impetus and breathing space to chart a fresh course in which we are continually striving to improve all our services for patients.
Our vision is to be a high-performing group of NHS hospitals, renowned for excellence and innovation, and providing safe and compassionate care to our patients in east London and beyond. That means being a provider of excellent patient safety, known for delivering consistently high standards of harm-free care and always caring for patients in the right place at the right time. It also means being an outstanding place to work, in which our WeCare values and behaviours are visible to all and guide us in how we work together.
Shape your story and help London return to normal
Band 5 Health Care Professional (Immunisations) – 6 months fixed-term contract
We are expecting to receive the Covid-19 vaccine very soon. When it becomes available, it will be our best defence against the virus alongside effective social distancing, wearing a mask and washing your hands. It will also be key to life returning to normal and doing all the things we miss.
Vaccinating as many Londoners as quickly as possible will require your help.
We are looking for healthcare professionals from across the capital. You may already have experience of delivering a vaccine to people, or you may be willing to be trained. We are also looking for qualified allied health professionals, pharmacy and dental professionals, healthcare scientists, as well as people with first aid qualifications. We are also looking for people to fill important non-clinical roles.
Where possible, we will seek to ensure paid roles are offered on a flexible basis, including outside of usual working hours to fit in with your other responsibilities. You will be offered appropriate training, supervision and PPE will be provided to ensure your safety, and the safety of others.
These roles are anticipated to start from December 2020. But if December feels too soon for you, please let us know when you would be available to start.
As a Registered Health Care Professional working in immunisations, the post holder will work as part of a dynamic team in delivering a safe and effective service for the mass delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations. The post holder will undertake activities such as clinical assessment, dilution and drawing up of the vaccine from multi-dose vials.
