The British Institute of Radiology have today released a statement supporting AXREM proposal to vaccinate frontline workers from supplier companies
11 February 2021
AXREM member companies have provided extensive support to the NHS throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, through supply of technology solutions and the associated support staff to assist healthcare providers in managing the unprecedented demand brought about by Coronavirus. This has included providing imaging technology and radiotherapy treatment devices technology and support staff at very short notice in large volumes to NHS Trusts.
AXREM members welcome and fully support the UK Government led vaccination programme which is currently being rolled out at speed and the advice and prioritisation for vaccination provided by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
We believe it is only fair that critical support staff in member companies are afforded similar vaccination protection against the virus that their NHS colleagues receive.
Sally Edgington, AXREM Director said “It is great to get the support and backing of other organisations such as the BIR, and is vital that on important issues like this industry work together to ensure staff wellbeing is at the forefront”.
