COVID-19 Vaccination Programme Registered Health Care Professional (RHCP) - Clinical Supervisor

With clinical trials progressing well we are preparing to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to millions of at-risk people across the country as soon as they are approved by the MHRA, the official UK regulator.

And with the recent Department for Health and Social Care consultation on temporary changes to legislation we can allow a wider group of staff to vaccinate with appropriate training.

To prepare, we are looking for NHS colleagues who are willing to take on a role and who are willing to be trained to once again put themselves forward to lend a hand.

Work could commence from December 2020. But if December feels too soon for you, please don’t deter from expressing your interest now as you could join us later.

As a COVID-19 Clinical Supervisor you be responsible for overseeing a team of Immunisers.

You will responsible for:  

  • Supervising clinical assessments of patients prior to vaccination
  • Supporting the reviews of complex medical histories, any potential adverse reactions and offering specialist advice as needed.
  • Ensuring the vaccination station, from set up to running the station, complies with relevant procedures
  • Clinical supervision of safe immunisations
  • Supervision of drawing up and preparation of the vaccine before administration and ensuring that each vaccine activity is recorded.
  • Delivery of the safe immunisation service and assisting any agreed changes needed within the setting and service areas.
  • Ensuring the best possible clinical outcomes by using up-to-date skills and adhering to policies and procedures
