Covid-19 Practice Staff & Self-Isolation

As the government has now lifted covid measures the Gov.uk webpage Managing healthcare staff with symptoms of a respiratory infection or a positive COVID-19 test result  is one to check for updates and self-isolation changes.

In summary it does say :-

Patient-facing healthcare staff who have no symptoms of a respiratory infection are no longer required to test for COVID-19 on a regular basis.

However it goes on to say

Routine asymptomatic testing for patient-facing healthcare staff should only continue where local healthcare organisations have sought appropriate advice to undertake this testing as part of broader infection prevention and control measures, for example to asymptomatically test staff who may be in close contact with patients who are at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19. Appropriate advice should be sought from Medical Directors, Nursing Directors or Infection Prevention and Control teams.

 

You are strongly recommended to check the details in full as any updates are often as pace.
