No Jab-No Job to End

It has been announced that the Government’s controversial 'no jab, no job' rule in care homes is being revoked.

Estimates suggest 30,000 unvaccinated staff lost their jobs when the policy came into effect last November. The change will become effective from 15th March.

Professor Martin Green, chief executive of Care England, said, “unfortunately, the decision to remove vaccination as a condition of employment for residential care staff comes too late for many of the people who left our services because they did not want to be vaccinated.”

Around 30% of NHS and care home managers have said that they opposed the rule being revoked.
