Privacy Notice – Staff Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations

On 14 November 2021, the Department of Health and Social Care published the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2021 (SI 2021/891) which began the process of making it a legal requirement for any patient-facing staff working in health and social care settings to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless exempt.

This means that relevant patient-facing staff undertaking CQC related activities will be required to provide evidence that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, subject to specific exemptions, by no later than 01st April 2022.

These regulations will protect vulnerable people and individual workers in health and social care settings, including hospitals, GP practices, dentists, community services and where care is delivered in a person’s home.

In order to monitor compliance with the new regulations, the Trust must collect information about the vaccination status of eligible staff and/or any medical exemptions that might apply.

Please note that the COVID-19 vaccination effort is fast-moving, and this privacy notice is subject to change.
