Agency Workers Alert: Time for Free NHS Flu Jab

The British Nursing Association is encouraging all UK healthcare workers to have the free NHS Flu jab for which all healthcare workers are eligible. 

Frontline nurses, HCAs and other agency workers should protect themselves by having the flu vaccine to prevent the spread of flu to colleagues and other members of the community.

The 2012/13 UK vaccine protects against three types of flu virus, according to the NHS Cumbria Partnership. This year's flu jab protects against:

  • H1N1 - the strain of flu that caused the swine flu pandemic in 2009
  • H3N2 - a strain of flu that can infect birds and mammals and was active in 2011 
  • A strain of flu that was active in 2010 known as B/Wisconsin/1

Britons are the 'most unhygienic nation', according to a new report. Britons were half as likely as other nationals to cover their hands and mouth more frequently when coughing or sneezing during the swine flu pandemic, the study has suggested.

The findings were published in the journal 'Lancet Infectious Diseases'. Dr Gillian Steel Fisher of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, in America, said: "The wide variations between countries in our study shows that in the event of another serious outbreak of infectious disease, public perceptions have to be taken into account to best tailor and communicate policy approaches that need public support in each country.

"Our findings suggest that promoting non-pharmaceutical interventions - such as handwashing and avoiding large public gatherings of people - do not jeopardise the adoption of vaccination, though the uptake of vaccines was low compared to other behaviours in all countries we surveyed.

"To maximise the effect of pandemic policies, future efforts might need to combine vaccination programmes with support for the most effective non-pharmaceutical interventions."

BNA Weather Warning

The British Nursing Association is advising agency workers to check the weather before travelling to shift assignments during the forecast cold spell. Agency nurses and HCA health care assistants should contact their BNA support consultant if they believe that they might be delayed in travelling to a shift on time. 

This will enable the agency to advise the client healthcare service provider. Ice and freezing temperatures are forecast for at least the next two days. 

The agency is advising agency workers to check weather forecasts such as at the Met Office and take advice regarding care preparation and maintenance from organisations such as the AA, which issues this advice before setting off on a car journey:

  • Get up at least 10 minutes early to give you time to prepare the car.
  • Don't drive off like a tank-commander, with a tiny hole cleared in the windscreen. Clear all windows using a scraper and de-icer.
  • Use a cigarette lighter to warm a key for a frozen lock. Don't breathe on the lock, as the moisture will condense and freeze.

 Plan routes to favour major roads which are more likely to have been cleared and gritted. Put safety before punctuality when the bad weather closes in. Allow extra time for winter journeys but be prepared for the inevitability of being late for work due to unexpected delay. 

BNA continues to provide temporary staff whatever the conditions. The British Nursing Association has provided healthcare staff since 1948, says BNA director Adam Streeter. BNA is the longest serving of all UK nursing agencies. The association is a preferred supplier of agency nurses and HCA staff to NHS and private hospitals, GP Surgeries and other Primary Care service providers - as well as the domiciliary homecare sector. 

BNA offers short and long term nurses jobs. The agency provides staff for Primary Care GP surgeries; Accident & Emergency; Intensive Treatment Unit; ICU; Intensive Care Unit; High Dependency Unit; Cardiac Care Unit; Special Care Baby Unit; Ear Nose & Throat; and Maternity, The Defence Force, Nursing Homes and to patients requiring domiciliary or complex care at home.
