Motion text

That this House notes that vaccination as a condition of deployment within health and social care would deepen the existing staffing crisis and pose an existential threat to the NHS and our social care system; notes that tens of thousands of residential care workers have lost their jobs since November 2021 when vaccination became a condition of deployment within CQC-registered care homes in England; believes that any review and revocation of vaccination as a condition of deployment within health and social care should apply retrospectively and ensure that care workers who have been dismissed or left employment due to compulsory vaccination do not suffer loss or detriment; and therefore calls on the Government to ensure that care workers have the right to be re-employed in their previous role, including protection of continuity of service, and provide appropriate funds to compensate workers for loss of earning and any pension losses.
