Interim Guidance for staff from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Backgrounds

01 June 2020

Please see below guidance to support staff from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Backgrounds.  We are aware that there is emerging evidence that people from this group may be disproportionately affected by COVID-19.  Further research and reviews are still underway and we await the result of these.  Meanwhile, the health and wellbeing of our health and social care staff is a key priority and we are aware that many BAME staff may be feeling anxious and wish to discuss how best to protect themselves and their families at this difficult time.  The below interim guidance is to help you and your placement area by setting out best practice that should be adopted to support BAME staff.
