Updated shielding guidance


The existing guidance, published by the joint working group of the NHS Staff Council Executive, has been updated to ensure it remains fit for purpose regardless of the level of national or local restrictions applied within England and the implications upon shielding requirements.


The guidance provides information on:

  • how staff can be supported to return to work, and
  • where a physical return is not possible, options available to staff and employers.
