Dear NHS Trust or Clinical Commissioning group,

On behalf of Sky News, I am trying to obtain an answer to the following questions.

I would appreciate a response as detailed as possible please.

"Simon Stevens and Amanda Pritchard wrote to all NHS trusts and CCG Chief Executives on the 29th of April to advise that employers, on a precautionary basis, should conduct risk assessments for staff at greater risk during the COVID-19 pandemic and to act accordingly.
Has your organisation completed risk assessments on all Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff?
What precautions, if any, have you put in place to protect BAME staff once they've been risk assessed?"

Yours faithfully,

Inzamam Rashid
