Fears of the mass firing of more than 70,000 National Health Service (NHS) workers have prompted the government to consider pausing its plans to mandate COVID-19 vaccination for all health service staff.

A temporary suspension of the controversial policy is being “actively” looked at within the Department of Health and Social Care amid dire warnings from hospital trusts and general practitioners of the severe impact from staff shortages on services.

All staff in patient-facing roles are currently required to be double-vaccinated against COVID-19 by April 1 or face dismissal.
