NHS and easyJet

EasyJet cabin crew are to be fast-tracked to support the NHS vaccination programme. Following it's recent offer of help to the UK Government, easyJet cabin crew are being recruited and fast-tracked to support the NHS as part of the vital nationwide effort to distribute the Coronavirus vaccine.

The airline wrote to the UK Prime Minister in November to offer support to the Government on its efforts to implement the national Covid-19 vaccination programme this winter. With over 3,000 crew who are first aid trained, security cleared and based up and down the UK – in London, Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast – easyJet cabin crew are well positioned to help support the NHS in the nation-wide vaccination programme.

As easyJet continues to operate a reduced schedule as a result of the pandemic, furloughed crew have an ideal skill set to be able to assist in the effort to provide much needed inoculation support to the NHS in rolling out the Covid-19 vaccine.

Crew who apply will be fast-tracked to become trained vaccinators at NHS vaccination centres across the country and will undergo online training and onsite immunisation training to become fully-qualified in administering the vaccine.

Stevenage, close to the Luton Head Office of the airline is to host the initial easyJet vaccinators.

One of the first NHS trusts in England to enlist the support of fast-tracked easyJet crew is Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust. Their chief executive Elliot Howard-Jones said: “We are all looking forward to welcoming some of first easyJet crew for further training to become highly-valued members of our Trust’s immunisation team. Their first-aid and caring skills will make them ideally suited to help deliver the huge task we currently face, to give those most at risk protection against the Covid-19 virus.”
