Risk assessments for at-risk staff groups (England Only)

NHS England has issued guidance around risk assessments for at-risk staff groups. All employers need to make significant progress in deploying risk assessments within the next two weeks and complete them – at least for all staff in at-risk groups – within four weeks. Specific metrics need to be published by organisations from their staff reviews. Further details of the guidance, metrics and support on risk assessments can be found here.

The RPS has developed a position statement in discussion with other pharmacy organisations to support pharmacy teams on the frontline. You can also read more on our hub page, which signposts to useful resources to help teams on risk assessments.
