As well as HSE requirements, in England the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has responsibility for both patient and employee health and safety in its registered providers. Considerations in this type of organisation include infection control, moving and handling and work place violence.
As well as providing advice we can review your documents and protocols to ensure CQC compliance and assist with CQC audits.
Health and Safety in GP Surgeries is paramount not just for your employees but also for your patients. Having risk assessments that identify hazards that may affect the members of the public that visit your Practice will help reduce the risk of accidents and any potential public liability claims.
Identifying the mental health needs of your employees, who may be dealing with challenging and difficult circumstances is an important part of your Health and Safety provision. We can provide advice on how to include this in your Health and Safety documentation and embed as part of the culture of your Practice; working with the medical expertise both within your Practice and our external contacts.
