You may be one of the 32 million people in the UK who have already received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination. Or you may still feel a sense of uncertainty. Here at Medacs Healthcare, we understand there are so many questions and myths flying around about the vaccine. Is it safe to have? What are the side effects? What does the vaccine contain? Does the vaccine affect fertility? We decided to hold some Covid-19 Vaccination discussion sessions for our care workers and staff in partnership with AKD Solutions to stimulate conversations and enable individuals to make an informed decision about the vaccination.
The UK Government made an announcement in February that will change international recruitment practices and see the UK promote ethical, fair and sustainable overseas recruitment within health and social care. This new code of practice is believed to help the UK reach its target of 50,000 additional nurses and an extra 50 million GP appointments by 2024. So, what does this news mean for future international recruitment?
It’s no secret that working on the frontline can trigger many mental health and wellbeing concerns. When your work is focused on caring for others, particularly in these challenging times, it’s all the more important that you feel able to speak openly about your own mental health, and be able to access help and support when you need it. This is why we are launching our online support portal for professionals across the health and social care sector. We spoke to Candidate Engagement Manager Laura Dugdale to find out more.
