Immunisations & Vaccinations

It is vital that your health and the health of our patients and service users are protected by ensuring that your immunity status is up to date.  

Immunisation of healthcare and laboratory workers helps:

  •  Protect the individual and their family from an occupationally-acquired infection
  •  Protect patients and service users, including vulnerable patients who may not respond well to their own immunisation
  • Protect other healthcare and laboratory staff
  •  Allow for the efficient running of services without disruption.

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) 1974, employers, employees and the self-employed have:

“specific duties to protect, so far as reasonably practicable, those at work and others who may be affected by their work activity, such as contractors, visitors and patients. Central to health and safety legislation is the need for employers to assess the risks to staff and others”

These will be undertaken as part of the pre-employment check for new staff.  If you are unsure of your immunisation status you can contact the Occupational Health Service to request an immunisation review at any time during your employment.
