A joint working group of the NHS Staff Council Executive has published a document containing answers to questions around COVID-19 sickness management.
The questions cover:
- the impact of cancelled or delayed treatment on a staff members ability to return to work and the interaction with sick pay and sickness triggers
- pay for staff who are required to self-isolate pre and post operation
- employer flexibilities around the use of phased returns.
