Services for Boots Colleagues

How The Scheme Works

Doctorcall has been asked to establish a vaccination and follow-up scheme for Boots Colleagues.

The services provided under the scheme are:

  • Hepatitis B Antibody Level Checks (immunity tests)*
  • Healthcare Worker Vaccinations
  • Needle-stick Injury Aftercare

*  Doctorcall can also provide Hepatitis B vaccinations for Boots colleagues, where circumstances mean that the colleague falls out of scope for the “Boots PGD for the supply of Hepatitis B vaccination” as provided by Boots Travel vaccination pharmacists.

All services are accessible in the following way:

  • Step 1 – Select your Boots questionnaire
  • Step 2 – Follow the instructions for completing your questionnaire as required.
  • Step 3 – Doctorcall will contact you with instructions of what to do next.
  • Step 4 – If treatment or testing is required we give you information on how to arrange an appointment with your nearest clinic.

 

Doctorcall will then advise you of the appropriate course of action and provide details of your nearest clinic with instructions for arranging your appointments.

The Services

Hepatitis B Antibody Level Checks (immunity tests) and Vaccinations

After registering with Doctorcall and having completed a Hepatitis B Vaccination questionnaire if required, Doctorcall will provide you with details of your nearest network clinic with instructions for you to arrange your appointments.

You will arrange your own appointment with the network clinic directly. You must familiarise yourself with and adhere to the cancellation policy of the clinic you are attending.

You should attend your clinic appointment as arranged, remembering to take with you any required certificates or documentation.

You do not need to pay anything.

Healthcare Worker Vaccinations

Only a small population of Boots colleagues will require Healthcare Worker Vaccinations. You will be informed by Boots if the services that you provide, require you to have Healthcare Worker Vaccinations.

If you think you should have Healthcare Worker Vaccinations, and have not been approached by Boots, please contact your line manager and Clinical Governance Pharmacist, (who in turn may seek advice from the Chief Pharmacist’s Office) and explain the nature of the service that you provide, so it can be risk assessed.

After registering with Doctorcall and having completed a Healthcare Worker Vaccination questionnaire, Doctorcall will provide you with details of your nearest network clinic with instructions for you to arrange your appointments.

You will arrange your own appointment with the network clinic directly. You must familiarise yourself with and adhere to the cancellation policy of the clinic you are attending. You should attend your clinic appointment as arranged, remembering to take with you any required certificates or documentation.

In addition to your vaccination history details, you should take any documents detailing the local recommendations that the NHS/CCG (the body that have commissioned the service that you provide) have made in relation to what vaccinations are required for healthcare staff carrying out the service.

You do not need to pay anything.

Needle-stick Injury Aftercare

In the event a needle-stick injury with a used or contaminated needle, follow the protocol to contact Boots Colleague Health (during office hours) or directly to the local A&E (outside office hours).

Sometimes no further action is needed, however if further action is required, the local A&E may have started a Hepatitis B course (or given a booster), taken blood samples and stored them.

Boots colleagues who have been to the local A&E and require further follow-up should register with Doctorcall and complete a Needle-stick Aftercare Questionnaire.

Doctorcall will provide you with details of your nearest network clinic with instructions for you to arrange your appointments.

(NOTE: follow up may occur at the hospital if HIV post exposure prophylaxis is given. If so, continue to follow up with the hospital)

You will arrange your own appointment with the network clinic directly. You must familiarise yourself with and adhere to the cancellation policy of the clinic you are attending.

You should attend your clinic appointment as arranged.

Blood Tests

If you have a blood test, your results will be presented to you in the appropriate way by the appropriate person at the network clinic. You will not receive your results from Doctorcall.

Where the result of a Hepatitis B immunity test indicates less than full immunity, you must contact Doctorcall with your results. Doctorcall will then advise you of the appropriate course of action.
