Vaccination Volunteering

Vaccination Programme Marshall – Volunteer Role

Is this for you?
Do you want to be a part of this ground-breaking vaccination programme and help fight the pandemic? Do you want to help your community, supporting patients before and after, to access the vaccination programme, and be a friendly face of encouragement?  Are you able to work outside in all weathers for 4 hours at a stretch? (NB There may be some indoor roles available also)

Can you volunteer to help at Bankfield Surgery in Elland on 13th or 15th April?

PLEASE NOTE THIS OPPORTUNITY IS NOW FULL (11.45AM 9/4/21).  Volunteers in Calderdale are so amazing – to respond so quickly!   There will be further opportunities similar to this arising in the next couple of weeks – info left posted here so you can see for future reference.

We have an urgent request for some volunteers for vaccination clinics next week. These are marshalling roles, so no need for any particular medical skill or knowledge.

Calder & Ryburn PCN, have clinics at Bankfield Surgery in Elland on Tuesday 13th and Thursday 15th April and we need a minimum of 4 and a max of 6 volunteer marshalls for each of these two clinics.  Our shifts are 8am to 1.15pm and 1pm until 6pm.  Work is both indoors and outdoors – we rotate roles around so people aren’t all stuck outside in the cold for the whole time.It would be useful if any volunteers could come and shadow the current marshals at clinics we have this week to see how it is run.  We have a clinic on Saturday if anyone can make it for a short while to pick up how things run.

If you can help out with either of these two clinics in Elland, DETAILS REMOVED

This is not a firm commitment at this stage  – someone will be in touch with you shortly to confirm which shifts you have been allocated, and to give more details about the role and what is involved.
If you need more info please contact jacqui.howarth1@nhs.net

We may also have a need for 1 or 2 volunteers for a vaccination clinic at Boulevard Practice in central Halifax/Savile Park on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th April. If you may be able to help here, then please make a note of this in the ‘Any Comments’ section at the end of the online registration form, and again, if you are needed, someone will be in touch.

Thanks very much for your interest!
