Help shape the delivery of COVID-19 vaccination to social care staff

NHS Scotland want to speak to frontline social care staff as part of research to inform the delivery of a future COVID-19 vaccination to social care workers.

The research will help them better understand social care staff needs, such as how and where delivering a COVID-19 vaccination would work best, once a suitable vaccine is available.

They’re looking for workers to take part in a one-to-one telephone chat which will last around 30 minutes. This can also be done as a video call.

Times will be arranged to fit around your schedule and it’s likely to take place between 19 October and early November.

Who can take part?

NHS Scotland is initially looking for social care staff (in the statutory, third and private sectors) who provide direct care in the following settings:

  • residential care and secure care for children
  • community care for persons at home (including housing support and care at home services)
  • care homes for adults.

If you are interested in taking part please email [email protected] with the subject title of your email ‘C19 vacc chat’. Please also provide your job role and the type of service you work in. A mix of staff across the above groups will be contacted.

The deadline for emailing your interest in taking part is 21 October 2020.
