Staff testing and Action Cards COVID-19

As part of our review of our IPC measures, from 9th May 2022 there are some changes to our staff testing process.

The main changes are:

  • PCR tests have been replaced by lateral flow tests
  • Colleagues in non-patient facing roles can return to work after day 5, providing they feel well, have no fever and have carried out a risk assessment with their manager
  • The staff declaration form has been removed, but colleagues must continue to complete the daily symptom checker on return to work
