Your staff are your greatest asset and we know that keeping them healthy and in work is a priority.

Business continuity plan for Occupational Health Service Delivery: - COVID-19

With the latest advice from Government we have reviewed our business continuity plan to identify what we can put in place if we are no longer able to undertake face to face appointments, or work from our offices because of Covid-19.

Our continuity plan has taken into account the services we deliver, our partners delivery plans (COPE Physio and Pam Assist) and also if we have any staff who have to self-isolate.

We have rigorous hygiene protocols for all of our consulting rooms and the team are vigilant when it comes to personal hygiene in the office and the cleanliness of desk surfaces, keyboards and phones and support and promote good practices.

Above all we are working in line with the guidance provided and updated daily from GOV.UK, Public Health England, and the NHS.
