NHS Dentistry and Oral Health update on vaccination as condition of deployment

By DTA | 2nd February 2022 | News

As you know the Government passed legislation requiring vaccination as a condition of deployment which was due to come in from 1 April 2022. However, as announced on Monday to the House of Commons, the Secretary of State has confirmed this is being reconsidered.

The Government's decision is subject to Parliamentary process and will require further consultation and a vote to be passed into legislation.

This change in Government policy means the NHS and CDO England request that employers do not serve notice of termination to employees affected by the VCOD regulations.

Please read the letter that has been sent to all dental contractors  on Monday 31 January for more information.
