Example 1:

Tens of thousands of care home staff have not been fully vaccinated against coronavirus and are set to lose their jobs next week, the latest figures suggest.

Around one in ten NHS staff have not received their vaccines, with a similar number of care home staff not receiving the jab.

This leaves as many as 60,000 healthcare professionals unvaccinated.

The number includes those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons as well as those who have self-certified as exempt.

The Government has made it mandatory for staff in registered care homes in England to have both jabs as a condition of deployment unless they are exempt for valid medical reasons.

This mandate will take effect next Thursday.

The regulations cover all NHS workers, not just medical professionals.

The rule has led sector leaders to fear a mass exodus from the industry, something they claim could jeopardise safe care.

Example 1 Tens of thousands of care home staff have not been fully vaccinated against coronavirus and are set to lose their jobs next week, latest figures suggest. Around 89.4% of staff working in older age care homes had received two vaccine doses as of October 31, according to data from NHS England. The remaining 49,040 staff – around one in 10 of the total – had not been recorded as having received two doses at this point. The equivalent figure for staff in care homes for under-65s is 13.6% – 11,924 staff. This suggests a total of 60,964 staff have not had a second jab or their second jab has not been reported as of the end of October. The total includes staff who cannot be vaccinated for valid medical reasons and those whose vaccination status is unknown, while there may also be a time lag in some vaccinations being reported. There is no published data on how many staff have self-certified as exempt or have applied for official proof. But it is understood that this is around several thousand staff. The Government has made it mandatory for staff in registered care homes in England to have both jabs as a condition of deployment, unless they are exempt for valid medical reasons. From next Thursday, it will be a legal requirement for staff who are not exempt to be doubly vaccinated if they are to continue in their role. The regulations also cover any worker, including NHS staff, tradespeople and inspectors, who needs to enter a care home as part of their employment. But residents and their visitors, or people who need to enter the residence to provide emergency assistance or urgent maintenance, or under-18s will not need to show proof of vaccination. Sector leaders fear an exodus of care staff which they warn will threaten safe care.

A simple lifestyle change could help you get a better night’s sleep.

SINCE January 2020, COVID-19 has affected our lives in many ways. It has affected how we shop, how we travel, how we interact with friends. We have also learnt how it is affecting our sleep – how it was working its way into where we feel at rest. Now, nearly two years on, and as we enter a season where we want to sleep more than ever, a new poll has found that we are finding new ways to fall asleep.

Manufacturer of luxury beds, Plushbeds, has found in a poll of one thousand people that just under half of them make use of sleep technology, traditionally in the form of an app, to get to bed in the evening. Mobile sleep technology has been around for over ten years but was really boosted by the advent of Apple’s iPhone in the 2000s.
