What are the Covid-19 vaccination requirements for placements in healthcare and social care settings?

On the 1st March 2022 the Department of Health and Social Care announced that the legal requirement for health and social care staff to be fully vaccinated would be revoked from the 15th March.

The approach that individual placement providers may take in relation to vaccination status and deployment of their staff, and access to students on placement, in different areas of their organisations is still not clear. The University, programmes of study and our students need to meet all the requirements placement providers may have to access different areas.

Students should therefore look out for further updates from their Schools.
