Call to Arms is the name of our campaign to recruit people to help with the Covid-19 vaccination programme in Derby and Derbyshire and the establishment of the Derbyshire Health and Care People Hub.
Call to Arms called for expressions of interest from registered health and care professionals and the general public to help support the vaccination programme. This included a paid and voluntary workforce that is delivering at primary care network sites and our mass vaccination site in Derby.
Our thanks go to everyone who responded and helped during the pandemic. In April 2021 our mass vaccination site in Derby administered their 100,000th vaccine.
The video that was produced at the start of the campaign is shown below.
The roles in the Covid-19 vaccination programme are primarily based at our mass vaccination site at Derby Arena (Royal Way, Derby, DE24 8JB) which operates a seven-day vaccination service.
We also support the local vaccination sites below, these are stipulated by vaccine clinic schedules (not seven-days a week like the mass vaccination site).
Details about the specific requirements of these roles are shown in the links below.
We are encouraging registered health care professionals to contact us to help support the Covid-19 vaccination programme. You may be looking for additional hours or a professional seeking to return to practice.
Registered health care professionals are responsible for vaccination drawing-up and patient clinical assessment prior to the vaccination, as well as, subject to the precise role, delivery of the vaccination itself.
The role may include:
If you are able to start working in this role, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We are encouraging health care assistants to contact us to help support the Covid-19 vaccination programme. Health care assistants will be involved in supporting the vaccination activity and sanitisation, working closely with the vaccinator and post-vaccination observation volunteers.
We are encouraging administrators to contact us to help support the Covid-19 vaccination programme. Admin staff will be responsible for providing admin support (data recording) to the vaccination activity inside the centres, working closely with the vaccinator.
Stewards/marshals play a huge part in the smooth running of our vaccination sites, supporting the patient flow through pre and post vaccination.
Our stewards manage the parking, entry and exit to our sites and they often support patients who require mobility assistance.
We are currently reviewing our recruitment and volunteer needs in light of the emergence of the Omicron Covid-19 variant and will be updating this page in due course.
