COVID-19 Vaccination Programme Registered HC Professional (RHCP)

With clinical trials progressing well we are preparing to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to millions of at-risk people across the country as soon as they are approved by the MHRA, the official UK regulator.

And with the recent Department for Health and Social Care consultation on temporary changes to legislation we can allow a wider group of staff to vaccinate with appropriate training.

To prepare, we are looking for NHS colleagues who are willing to take on a role and who are willing to be trained to once again put themselves forward to lend a hand.

As a COVID-19 RHCP you will be responsible for:
  • Conducting pre-vaccination clinical assessments.
  • Reviewing patient medical histories and any potential adverse reactions.
  • Preparing the vaccine prior to administration by using aseptic technique.
  • Dilution and drawing up of the vaccine from multi-dose vials.
  • Setting up the vaccination station.
  • Ensuring the best possible clinical outcomes by using up-to-date skills and adhering to policies and procedures.

We're looking for staff to work in EAST LANCASHIRE , across Burnley or Blackburn only .This will be at our Mass Vaccination sites within East Lancashire including Blackburn Cathedral and Burnley The Mall.

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust is the Lead Employer for COVID Mass Vaccination across Lancashire and South Cumbria. If you are interested in this, or other roles across the region, please visit the ELHT website for alternatives.

We know our health care family have always gone above and beyond the call of duty, and we've seen that more than ever during the COVID crisis. We have been contacted by many current or former health care professionals who for personal or financial reasons want to support the vaccination programme but do not want to be paid for their work. If this is you, please email via iwanttohelp@elht.nhs.uk to find out how you can help.
