I know that the ongoing situation around COVID-19 continues be a worrying and anxious time for people, and I wanted to add some reassurance to you about the measures we continue to take to protect our Service Users and Staff.
Our Staff receive comprehensive induction and ongoing training in infection control and are strictly following industry guidance from the UK’s Public Health Authorities. In line with the latest Government advice all our staff are working hard to minimise the risk of transmission through safe working procedures. This includes the use of personal protection equipment (PPE) as needed, implementation of the vaccination programme, and at least twice weekly testing.
The majority of our staff have now received both their vaccinations and we are now working on a programme of boosters and flu vaccinations at the same time. This should add another level of protection for both staff and service users, and help us to navigate our way out the pandemic safely back to some level of normality. Our staff continue to carry out at least twice weekly Lateral Flow Tests, and would isolate immediately upon discovery of a positive result. This is then followed up with a PCR test. We have been extremely fortunate as an organisation throughout the pandemic to keep the virus out of our services and thus reducing community transmission. Our numbers of service users who have tested positive remains very low, and I cannot thank our staff enough for their continued efforts in reducing the spread of Covid-19.
We continue to follow direction provided by the UK’s Public Health Authorities and review guidance daily, working closely with organisations such as Scottish Care, Care Inspectorate, Glasgow HSCP and other care providers. If you have a specific concern about your care needs or the needs of a family member, please contact me or a member of my team and we will be more than happy to reassure you.
