Risk assessments for BAME and other staff

Risk assessments for BAME and other staff

June 10, 2020

In the Primary Care Bulletin (29th May) they provided a link to the NHS Employers published guidance on risk assessment, particularly for at risk and vulnerable groups within the workforce; including links to the HSE website.  This includes staff returning to work for the NHS, and existing team members who are potentially more at risk due to their race and ethnicity, age, weight, underlying health conditions, disability, or pregnancy.
NHS Employers have taken an inclusive approach and have described that the guidance is applicable, with appropriate local adaptations, in all healthcare settings.

(Multiples should follow any guidance provided by your head office)
