Please read the following document which is designed to keep you safe while you are volunteering. You will need to agree the policy before undertaking your volunteering as a Vaccination marshal
§ You must be fit and well enough to undertake your volunteering shift – you are likely to be on your feet for the duration of your volunteering. Please do not attend if you are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19, if you have a cough or cold or if you have a high temperature. If you are unable to attend please remove yourself from the shift via your My Impact page or if it is within 2 hours of your shift please email us via the website.
- On arrival for your volunteer shift you must report to a marshal in a yellow high vis. You will receive a Hi-Vis jacket to identify you as a volunteer and your instructions for your shift.
- You will be representing the NHS during your volunteering and we expect volunteers to act professionally and politely at all times to the members of the public attending for their vaccinations. Should you encounter any difficulties, rudeness or any type of obstruction from members of the public please speak to an NHS member of staff for assistance rather than attempting to deal with the situation yourself. We will always have a staff member on call to provide support.
- For your own safety please maintain social distancing and wear a face mask at all times and follow instructions from the member of staff supervising volunteers; some people attending for vaccinations will be elderly or have mobility problems. If they need assistance alert a member of staff rather than breaking social distancing to help them yourself.
- Hand sanitiser will be provided on site, please use as directed. A mask will be provided to you.
Finally, on behalf of Guildford & Waverley Integrated Care Partnership, thank you for volunteering. Without your efforts we would not be able to roll out the vaccination programme in a timely manner. Your volunteering is helping to save lives.
