Our core purpose is to work with people and lead communities in improving their mental and physical health and wellbeing for a better life; through delivering excellent and responsive prevention, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment and care.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (DHCFT) made a policy and strategy decision to implement a 'people first' policy. We committed as an organisation to invest in the safety of our colleagues.
Have you offered a risk assessment to all staff?
Yes. An individualised BAME risk assessment and an individualised health risk assessment have been offered to all colleagues across our organisation. It has been a Trust health and safety policy to implement a risk reduction staff management approach since March 2020.
What percentage of all your staff have you risk-assessed?
In March 2020, we assessed the risks and asked for self-declaration of 100% of staff. As noted above, on 23 March 2020 a formal decision was made to send home staff with any underlying health condition, as defined by the long-term health condition list, or those who were pregnant. This was fully and rapidly enacted for all staff in these groups.
This was a group risk assessment and staff were asked to self-assess with their manager, and all of our organisation undertook that review. Therefore 100% of employees were involved in this process. Any staff member who had an underlying health condition as defined by the shielding list and at-risk (now 'clinically vulnerable') list, or who was pregnant, was proactively moved to home working.
