Leadership Group seek clarification on mandatory vaccination for VCSE H&SC workers

In response to the Government legislation requiring all staff who deliver frontline health and social care services regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by 31st March 2022, Alison Page and Paul Martin have written to leaders in the GM Health and Social Care Partnership as co-chairs of the VCSE Leadership Group Commissioning workstream. The letter outlines some of the key considerations in relation to the VCSE sector workforce and proposes a series of next steps to ensure the accurate interpretation of the requirement, and to ensure that clear guidance and support is provided to our VCSE sector.
