All our vaccination bank shifts for North Central London are flexible, with no minimum booking. To fit around you, we offer Monday-Sunday either 8am-2pm or 2pm-8pm, or you can pick up back-to-back shifts to make a longer day.

 

If your registration has lapsed, you will need to join the temporary register. Please visit the below links for guidance in making an application to join the temporary register:

If you need further support with returning to nursing, please contact our senior nurse who can guide through the process.

If you are thinking about returning to nursing or practising as an AHP in the longer term, working in our vaccination clinics is one route back. Your vaccinating hours count towards your practice hours and our dedicated senior nurse will always be pleased to talk to you about returning.

You can return to practice via the temporary register at our large vaccination sites and be supported to achieve your clinical practice hours so you can return to the permanent register. We can then support you to gain a permanent position within the NHS or social care at the end of the programme.

If you’d like to explore returning to nursing route, please contact our senior nurse

Before you start working, you’ll receive first class online and face-to-face practical training at Middlesex University (Hendon Campus) to build the skills and knowledge you’ll need to work in our vaccination centres. You will be paid for your time. 

When you start your role, our clinical assessors will be close by to coach and encourage you during the first two weeks while you build your confidence.

 

If you work in an NHS trust in our area and want to join us for an extra shift. If you work in the independent, care home or charity sector as a nurse we can easily help you to sign up via Bank Partners.

All of the providers are fully supportive of the project and you’re welcome to work with us.
