Responding to the Government’s decision to reverse their position on mandatory covid vaccinations for health and care professionals, Dawn Hodgkins, Director of Regulation at IHPN said:

“Independent providers have been working tirelessly in recent months to support those staff who are vaccine-hesitant to get vaccinated.

“While vaccination will no longer be a condition of deployment, providers in the sector will continue to encourage staff to get the vaccine and ensure that patients are as safe as possible.”
