Locum Bulletin

Dear Locums

We hope you are keeping well during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please note there is an update to our company policy with regards to PPE as a result of the pandemic. In light of the NHS guidance we have received regarding pharmacy teams being less likely to be required to self-isolate if a branch colleague tests positive and all members of the team have been wearing PPE, we have taken the decision to make it mandatory for all pharmacy colleagues to wear a fluid-resistant facemask at all times, except while taking their lunchbreak. During lunchbreaks, when masks cannot be worn, care must be taken to sit 2 metres apart from colleagues.

This update to our company policy affects all locums who are working within our branches with immediate effect. Please do not accept shifts with us if you are not prepared to wear a fluid-resistant facemask.

Thank you for your support with keeping our colleagues and patients as safe as possible.
