By Graham Hill

13th Jan 2021 | Local News

The call has gone out for people who could help roll out Leicestershire's coronavirus vaccination programme.

In the coming weeks the NHS and the Government will be trying to ramp up the number of jabs administered at vaccination sites.

There is now an effort to recruit both volunteers and paid staff for roles.

Voluntary Action Leicestershire (VAL) is looking for greeters, stewards and chaperones for patients who are arriving to receive their vaccinations.

A North West Leicestershire vaccination hub is expected to open soon at Measham Leisure Centre.

NHS staff will remain responsible for the actual administration of vaccine doses.

A VAL spokesman said: "The key aim of this role is to support a smooth and safe process for vaccinations to take place at several sites across Leicester and Leicestershire.

"Volunteers will be given specific tasks when they are on site."

Duties will include:

•Greeting people as they arrive at the site and directing them to each stage of the process in a safe manner

•Being a friendly face to reassure people as they make their way around the site

•Reminding people about national guidelines such as social distancing and mask protection

•Addressing any issues or concerns that arise and escalate to a member of staff if needed

•Staying in contact with the other areas' representatives to help avoid congestion

•Supporting a smooth process that allows speed, safety and security for everyone involved

•Identifying any people that may require additional support during their visit to the site (carer/chaperone, additional language support) and directing them to where they can get support

•Offering enhanced support to those requiring it (e.g. those who cannot queue standing)

PPE will be provided to all volunteers
