Additionally, all Hospice based and patient facing roles are being reviewed to determine whether mandatory COVID-19 vaccination will be required for these role holders.

We strongly advise that all applicants are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 on application to Hospice based and patient facing roles, if they are able, as a means for employees and volunteers to protect their own health and that of our vulnerable patients.
