EveryDay Care Service Update 24.07.2020
We have experienced another good week where staff absence has plateaued at 5%. Thankfully we have no reported cases of customers with Covid-19. We will continue the great work upholding controls and protecting customers, staff and volunteers effectively.
We remain in Phase 3 of our Exit Plans and Wellbeing Centres remain in Phase 2. Kerry Parker, Head of Professional Care Services has been in discussions this week again with North Tyneside Council about the opening of the Wellbeing Centres. Hopefully we can announce news next week.
The Bradbury Centre HQ remains closed but all controls are in place as a safe place to work. These include ‘Sneeze Screens’. Our Leadership Team will finalise working arrangements for the Bradbury Centre next Wednesday which our Chief Executive, Dawn McNally will communicate.
From 1 August we will be welcoming back to work those staff who have been shielding. For these staff, we will have finalised their individual risk assessments.
The ISO 9001-2015 inspection started this week and will run until 30 July 2020 when we expect to hear the outcome. It has been a tough week for all those involved as this has taken place via Zoom. However we’re extremely confident of a very positive outcome.
Staff working from home, or on furlough have completed the Staff Survey circulated by our HR team. Their feedback is being collated and will be presented to our Leadership Team next week to tie in with the discussions around future working arrangements in the Bradbury Centre.
