What Do Vaccine Shifts Look Like?
All shifts that can be seen on the ‘Find Work’ page are eligible for you to apply.
Healthcare organisations are making the use of ‘cover rules’ when posting shifts.
What are ‘cover rules’?
Cover rules can be used to allow staff from one staff type to see and apply for shifts that have been posted to a different staff type.
For example, within ‘Find Work’, you may see shifts available showing
- ‘Admin’ but you are signed up as a receptionist or an HCA,
- ‘Vaccinator’ but you are signed up as a practice nurse
You can apply for these shifts, see an example below:
These cover rules are set by the healthcare organisation and allow the rota manager to post a particular shift that is available to all the appropriate staff types that have the skills to work the shift.
Labels On Shifts
Shifts may also include labels, this allows for a quick snapshot of some extra information about the shift. For further context on what the label means, you can click on the ‘Details’ button. A popup will appear showing further details of the shift, under the heading ‘Shift labels’ there will be a description for what these labels mean.
In the example below: JS = JET Service
Other example labels could include:
- Lead GP - LG
- Vaccinator (registered professional) - VR
- Vaccinator (unregistered professional) - VU
- Reception - R
- Clinical Observation - CO
- V - Volunteer
- R - Remote shift
Applying For A Shift
Apply for a shift directly from the search results by clicking ‘Apply’. You will be prompted to confirm; then your application will be sent to the rota manager.
Once your application is sent, the apply button will then say 'withdraw', please note this is there if you would like to withdraw your application. You can read more on this here.
View all your applications under 'My Diary' these can be seen as a ‘Calendar’ view or a ‘List’ view. Any applications will show as a light orange colour.
TOP TIP: Apply for as many shifts as you like on the same day. The site will automatically withdraw any conflicting applications as soon as an application is accepted and booked in.
You will be notified when an application has been automatically withdrawn or accepted. If you are unsure please double check your Lantum diary.
If you wish to ask more details about a shift, you can message the Practice directly, see more details on how to do this here: How to message the practice?
Shifts are posted onto Lantum by the healthcare organisation, Lantum have no control over when these become available. To keep an eye on new shifts added, check your ‘Find Work’ page on the web or you can download the Lantum App to find and apply for shifts on the go.
When you are invited to join Lantum by a healthcare organisation they will let us know if you are part of a smaller group that will see and be notified about all the shifts posted by them. All these shifts will also show on the ‘Find Work’ tab.
If you can’t see any shifts, then please speak with your healthcare organisation to see if shifts have been posted that are available for your role or check back in a few days.
Application Accepted, What’s Next?
Once an application has been accepted, you will receive an email notification and this will also appear in the ‘My Diary’ section of your profile. Booked shifts will show as a light green colour.
