As one of the largest healthcare agencies in the United Kingdom, our priority is to ensure that agency personnel, employees, patients, and visitors remain safe by actively asking you to abide by the best practice guidance instructed by Public Health England (PHE).
As we exit the year, the Government has advised us to continue the regular precautions against the coronavirus. However, all restrictions have been lifted under Plan A, with the advice of mandatory masks applying to the individual business.
The latest guidance under Plan A are as follows:
You are no longer required to socially distance or wear masks, with the exception of one metre in hospital and passport control.
There are no restrictions in place.
