Starting in December 2020 but continuing into 2021 so never too late to join!
As part of the NHS’s program to vaccinate Key workers and the most vulnerable people in the borough in the fight against Covid-19, City and Hackney are operating two sites in Hackney vaccinating local residents against this virus. The first is Bocking Street off Mare Street and the second is John Scott Health Centre off Green Lanes
As a volunteer, you'll help each individual enter and exit the site safely taking into account the latest COVID secure guidelines, help them to register on arrival, as well as look after their wellbeing during whole appointment. This may include answering questions on what will happen, guiding them to appropriate areas or just giving a friendly smile and allowing them to share a story.
As we will be working with some of the most vulnerable in Hackney having a caring nature will be important in undertaking this role.
Working as a team of volunteers you will be following the Health Services own COVID policies to ensure that you too stay safe, with all necessary PPE being supplied.
As the surgery will be operating 12 hours a day, we have a range of volunteering slots available through the day and evening (with the possibility to sign up across multiple weeks at once), and coming soon, an option for weekends too - so please sign up stating your availability in your message to us so we can easily keep you up to date.
Current shifts are from Tuesday to Fridays at the following times:
8am – 11am / 11am – 2pm / 2pm – 5pm / 5pm – 8pm
Training will be given before your 1st shift and we have 2 specific days for 2021 planned on 4th and 11th of January.
