EveryDay Care Service Update for Customers 26.6.2020

All EveryDay Care services are performing well and staff absence rates have plateaued at 5-7%. Our customers on the whole remain very well.

Moving to the Next Phase

Over the last couple of days  HM Government has announced further relaxing of lockdown from 4 July 2020. As a result we met to review how Phase 2 of our plan was going, and when to move to Phase 3. We’ve agreed to move to Phase 3 on 6 July this allows us to ring the changes on a week day. To emphasise our next Phase will start on Monday 6 July 2020 and not 4 July 2020.

Updated Risk Assessments

Staff will be trained in the updated Risk Assessments for their specific service for the new Phase. The new procedures allows us to track which staff member is in contact with others.

Key Service Headlines
