Caring for People at Highest Risk
GP Practices have been asked to help with the management of patients who are at the highest risk of severe illness if they catch Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19). This means a patient with an underlying disease or health condition, who catches the virus is more likely to be admitted to hospital than others.
Patients who are at risk:
Your employer is required to take steps to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace and should be able to explain to you the measures they have put in place to keep you safe at work.
If you have concerns about your health and safety at work you can raise them with your workplace union, the Health and Safety Executive or your local authority.
If you have concerns you can get advice on your specific situation and your employment rights by visiting the Acas website or calling the Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100.
