Support for individual staff risk assessments
Following NHS England and NHS Improvement’s request for the urgent completion of staff risk assessments to take into account the COVID-19 outbreak in last week’s digest, further support is now available to help community pharmacy contractors to undertake the necessary individual risk assessments.
NHSE&I have arranged a webinar on risk assessments in community pharmacy. Keith Ridge and Ed Waller will be hosting this webinar tonight (Wednesday 8th July from 7pm-8pm.)
The National Pharmacy Association (NPA) has developed a pack of individual risk assessment resources, with input from PSNC. The pack contains information to be issued to staff members alongside guidance on undertaking the assessments for employers.
