Health and Safety Policy and Procedure #3
This policy outlines the approach to health and safety covering non-clinical, non-patient facing activities associated with the provision of primary medical services in a general practice setting. The policy scope excludes clinical/nursing incidents which would be covered by professional indemnity insurance. The policy has been updated to have more detailed content focusing on the implications for patients, users and contractors because “at work” actually means ‘on the premises’ and ‘because of what the practice does’. More information and signposting on reporting and notification requirements has also been included.
