In light of the Covid-19 outbreak which has considerably changed working practices here at MidYorks NHS Trust volunteers are provided with Personal Protective Equipment. This equipment is of the utmost importance and designed for your health, safety and well-being.

Adhere to COVID19 infection control processes and policies through adhering to the following measures:

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – follow instructions from staff to wear PPE at all times when required to do so.  This includes the wearing of gloves, facemasks, visors and aprons.

To dispose of PPE safely when the shift ends.

Ensure that Social Distancing is wherever possible provided for the volunteers on site and in the Department.

To maintain a safe social distance, following government guidelines, or as advised by the staff at all times.  Where this may not be possible seek guidance from a member of staff on the ward/area where you volunteer as to how you may or may not proceed.

Ensure that Infection Prevention and Control guidance, policies and procedures are in place for the volunteer ie hand sanitisers.

To follow good practice regarding frequent washing of hands and using the hand sanitisers provided on the wards/department/hospital site.

Sickness – In light of COVID19 the Trust will arrange for a volunteer to be tested if they are unwell and displaying the symptoms of COVID19.

The volunteer must report any sickness absence as soon as possible to the volunteer co-ordinator and do not attend if you or a member of your household/bubble is unwell or showing symptoms of COVID19.

Follow Government Guidelines on self-isolation if you suspect or if it is confirmed that your sickness is related to COVID19, or if you are advised to isolate by Track & Trace.

The MidYorks Trust will not expect you to volunteer in an area with confirmed COVID19 patients and to do so would be the volunteer’s choice if offered.

I understand that MidYorks NHS Trust cannot guarantee that I will not be exposed to COVID19 during the course of my voluntary work.
