Request:

1) Please could you give me a final figure on the number of staff involved with direct patient care who were NOT vaccinated?

2) Could you break this figure down by the number NOT vaccinated who were employed as (a) doctors, (b) nurses, (c) other professionally qualified clinical staff and (d) support staff.

3) In relation to these staff who were NOT vaccinated how many in each of those four groups were taken away from working in a position where they had direct patient care because they did not have the vaccination?

 

 

Response:

1) Please could you give me a final figure on the number of staff involved with direct patient care who were NOT vaccinated? 1043
2) Could you break this figure down by the number NOT vaccinated who were employed as
(a) doctors, 80
(b) nurses, 505
(c) other professionally qualified clinical staff and 182
(d) support staff. 278
3) In relation to these staff who were NOT vaccinated how many in each of those four groups were taken away from working in a position where they had direct patient care because they did not have the vaccination? We do no record this information
Please note that we are an integrated Trust with services in the community and at the Royal Bolton Hospital. The figures we have related to staff across the entire Trust.

 

Our figures reflect those staff who have received vaccinations from the Trust and some who have told us that they have received their jab elsewhere e.g. GP or pharmacy. However there are likely to be staff who have had their jab elsewhere but have not informed us.
