​Important information regarding COVID-19


Updated 23/02/2021 at 09:00

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).

Lockdown


Following from the Government instructed national lockdown announced on January 4th 2021, everyone must remain indoors and are only permitted to leave for:

  • Travelling to shops for basic essentials either for yourself or the vulnerable.

  • Travelling to work if you are unable to do so from home.

  • Exercise with either your household/bubble or one other person. Limited to once per day within your local area.

  • Meeting with your support bubble or childcare bubble if eligible to do so.

  • Seeking medical assistance or avoid injury, illness, or risk of harm such as domestic abuse.

  • Attending education or childcare if eligible to do so.

If you are required to travel but display any of the symptoms listed underneath or a member of your bubble has tested positive, please remain indoors and inform us by contacting your consultant or emailing Julia.Silver@daywebster.com 

With the coronavirus exit roadmap released, stages of the lockdown will be lifted gradually.
