Comprehensive staff vaccination can help reduce the risk of flu spreading across patient areas and affecting vulnerable patient groups. It can also impact on staff sickness within the Trust and on colleagues and be taken back to the family at home.
Peter Hill, Interim Chief Executive said: ” While it’s essential that all frontline staff are vaccinated, the vaccine will be available to all staff groups. This year we want to maximise the take up of the vaccine by frontline staff and we will be increasing access and availability to those staff groups.
Director of Nursing Tracey Nutter marks the start of the Salisbury District Hospital staff flu vaccination programme by giving Respiratory Consultant Catherine Thompson the first jab.
