As we continue to care for our patients, including those who may have COVID-19, the health and wellbeing of our colleagues remains a key priority.

Following the recent Government announcement that it will be compulsory for healthcare staff to have been vaccinated against COVID-19 by 1st April 2022 (medical exemptions may apply), all employees will be required to have received their first COVID-19 vaccination by 3rd February 2022.

We are therefore asking that all new colleagues joining the InHealth Group are vaccinated, or welcome the opportunity to be vaccinated, against COVID-19.

Every potential new member of staff in an eligible role will be asked to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination as part of the pre-employment process. We understand that this information is sensitive personal data and we are committed to complying with data protection guidance.

Before you apply for a vacancy with InHealth, please ensure that you have either been vaccinated or that you are comfortable being vaccinated against COVID-19 and understand that we treat COVID-19 positive patients within some of our healthcare settings.

We recognise that some individuals may have a reason for exemption - each individual exemption case will be considered, and we are very happy to discuss your personal circumstances.

Thank you.
