COVID-19 Policy

Our approach to supporting you throughout the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Our locum staff have completed Covid-19 Awareness CPD
  • They have been supplied with extra scrubs so you can rest assured your nurse is attending with a freshly laundered uniform each day.
  • All of our staff are fit tested for FFP3 masks and carry their own stock.
  • Our Area Managers are fit-test trained and can attend your practice to fit test our surgery staff with your masks. At that time, they can also fit-test any of your staff who still need to be fit-tested.
  • We have a robust sickness policy in place and all staff sickness is formally monitored and followed up.-As Cavity dental staff only locum for Cavity, we effectively have a “track and trace” system in place and are able to inform clients immediately of any risk of contagious illness (not just Covid-19) to any of their own staff or patients by our staff. This is something we have always done, we never use freelance or self-employed dental nurses where we cannot monitor or guarantee standards- which is why you can rest assured that our staff are competent, fit, well and up to date.
  • All staff are part of the Cavity lateral flow testing program with twice weekly testing. Proof of their results are uploaded and stored on their Cavity App.
  • We have carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment and shared the results with the people who work in our office.
  • We have cleaning, hand washing and hygiene procedures in line with guidance.-We have taken all reasonable steps to help people work from home.-We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance in the workplace.
  • Where people cannot be 2m apart, we have done everything practical to manage transmission risk.
