Health & Safety - GP
The policy has been thoroughly updated and includes detail on the five step process of risk assessment and more health specific as well as generic examples of hazards to be considered when assessing risks.
The reporting arrangements for general practice depend on who sustained the accident, where it was sustained, whether it is reportable etc. and this policy has been updated to include CQC and NRLS reporting as well as HSE RIDDOR. Crucially, in general practice, every accident and incident must, regardless of any other reporting considerations or requirements, always be treated and processed as significant events. This policy and procedure has been reviewed to reflect this.
NEW: A new policy for needlestick injuries and sharps has been added to your QCS system.
This policy and procedure has been updated with new RIDDOR reporting requirements.
