Returning to office working – an update

Following our last update, many staff have welcomed the opportunity to visit our offices to undertake collaborative activities or simply to just start spending some more time in the office, where this has been felt to be beneficial.

Please remember that all staff working in our offices are required to follow pragmatic processes which have been put in place to help keep all staff safe. Our dedicated return to office intranet page explains everything you need to know about office working, including:

  • How to do a risk assessment with your line manager
  • How to book a desk via DeskSmart before coming to the office
  • When to take a lateral flow test

We do realise this continues to be a difficult time for many of us, and along with the recent increase in infection rates and in line with our agile working policy, we are continuing to encourage staff to choose what working patterns and office attendance works best for them and the business during the winter period. We will regularly review our current office protocols and will amend them taking into account any developing government guidance.

Staff are reminded that it is recommended they visit the following sites for office working – including collaborative activity:

  • Borough directorate:
    • Performance & Assurance, Planned Care, Primary Care and Surge teams: Camden office
    • All other teams: current borough offices
