FAQs - work health assessment

Common questions and answers on work health assessment requirements in the NHS. These FAQs should be read in conjunction with the work health assessment standard.

Q. What inoculations are required for different positions?

It is difficult to give a set schedule of required vaccinations as this will differ between healthcare professions and between NHS organisations. We would therefore strongly recommend that employers work with their OH departments to determine which immunisations might be appropriate for each role, based on what would be considered proportionate to risk – both in the relation to the health and wellbeing of the individual themselves and from any potential patient safety aspect.

Employers will find it useful to refer to further guidance and advice provided by the OH team at NHS health at work to ensure they comply with the most up to date legislation in this regard.
