Resources for safe working

On this page you will find a collection of resources from across our website, as well as those from government and external bodies, regarding safety at work. We aim to provide you with access to the latest guidance and advice to help reassure you in light of safe working and the COVID-19 pandemic.

This page is divided into:

 

  1. Information for the team
  2. Information for your patients

 

1. Information for the team

Pregnancy and COVID-19

 

Vaccinations and COVID-19

 

Practice management: communications for your staff

 

Risk assessments and safety checks

 

Return to work toolkits

Our toolkits were launched in June 2020 and last updated in December 2020.

 

We do not anticipate updating these documents any further, unless there are significant changes to practise.  Any new information is likely to be government-issued which we will reflect in our FAQs.

 

The toolkits were created to offer guidance on returning to work safely after practices reopened or expanded their level of care after the first UK lockdown. They include information on AGPs, fallow time, air changes as well as advice on job retention and the workers support schemes.
