New COVID-19 sickness management FAQs

Staff Council Logo

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. 

Download the NHS Staff Council document to help you manage sickness absence in your organisation.
