The People Hub
Towards the end of 2020, the Derbyshire Health and Care People Hub, part of Joined Up Careers Derbyshire, launched a campaign to create a pool of people willing to support the health and social care workforce during the pandemic.
The campaign, called Call to Arms, called for expressions of interest from registered health and care professionals and the general public to help support the vaccination programme in Derby and Derbyshire with the Covid-19 vaccine.
We were overwhelmed with the number of expressions of interest received and want to thank everyone who got in touch and provided their details.
The People Hub has been processing the expressions of interest as quickly as possible and we thank everyone for their patience as we continue to work through this. The video that was produced at the start of the campaign is shown below.
At the start of January 2021, we paused the initial invite for general expressions of interest in Call to Arms but are now opening up applications to specific roles.
These roles in the Covid-19 vaccination programme are primarily based at our Mass Vaccination site at Derby Arena (Derby Arena, Royal Way, Derby, DE24 8JB) which operates a seven-day vaccination service.
We do support the primary care networks across Derbyshire at multiple vaccination sites based in GP practices, hospitals and leisure centres when these sites are in operation. Hours will be flexible based on availability/need. The roles are being recruited to by the People Hub (employed by Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust as lead employer).
