Covid-19 vaccination campaign to be led by health boards and trusts in Wales

GPs working on the Covid-19 vaccination campaign will work for health boards and trusts, Pulse reports.

The Welsh Government has now managed to ‘ensure each health board and trust has appropriate facilities and equipment to receive, store, prepare and administer vaccines in a safe and controlled manner and plans for rapid deployment through a variety of means (mass immunisation, mobile, occupational and wider primary care)’, a statement said.

In Scotland, health boards will take the lead as well. By contrast in England, GPs will lead the vaccination programme and Northern Ireland is expected to follow suit, Pulse suggests. 

LocumDeck makes it easy for you to offer your own sessions for Covid vaccination clinics, where you can state your session rate and PPE requirements. Your local NASGP Locum Chambers can also help you find opportunities to work in Covid-19 vaccination clinics at practices in your area.

"NASGP membership is an excellent tool for increasing bookings with local practices. The calendar and availability function on the platform are extremely useful and easy to use. The support staff are excellent troubleshooting any queries.

"Overall the platform gives me a real sense of control over bookings and I feel this is an invaluable tool for clinicians wishing to provide availability to clinics in the area."
