Pharmacies told to update NHSBSA on Covid-19 risk assessments
Community pharmacies have been told to update NHS Business Services Authority on the progress they are making in ensuring all their staff undergo coronavirus risk assessments.
Just a couple weeks after NHS England and Improvement said pharmacies should carry out individual risk assessments for staff in at-risk groups within a month, such as black, Asian and minority ethic team members, responsibility for data collection has been passed to the NHSBSA.
The PSNC said there are two dates for data collection; 9am onÂ July 9Â to 11.59pm onÂ July 17; and 9am onÂ July 24Â to 11.59pm onÂ July 31.
â€œContractors are asked to submit a declaration in each window, even if all staff assessments were completed during the first,â€ the PSNC said.
