1300 carers could lose jobs in Greater Manchester

It is estimated that 10 per cent of care home staff have not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19 in some boroughs of Greater Manchester – but health managers claim the system will hold up if they lose their jobs.

With the 11 November deadline for care home workers to be double jabbed approaching, it is believed 93.46pc pc of care workers across Greater Manchester have received their first dose. There are three boroughs around 90 per cent – Manchester, Stockport and Salford. That means about 650 members of staff won’t have had a jab and could lose their jobs.

The lowest rate of vaccination among care home staff is in the Manchester borough, where 89.8pc have had their first dose.

In total – across thre region’s ten boroughs – the number of staff that could be removed from care homes is estimated at more than 1,300.

Sir Richard Leese, Greater Manchester’s health lead says he is keeping a close watch on staffing levels but believes care homes are in a stable position.
