BAME staff risk assessment

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

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?
AND
What precautions, if any, have you put in place to protect BAME staff once they've been risk assessed?"

Yours faithfully,

Inzamam Rashid

Dear Inzamam

 

As you will be aware the Trust is facing an unprecedented challenge during
the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Our resources are being diverted away
from the usual compliance and information rights work. Whilst we recognise
that statutory timescales cannot be extended, we apologise that we will
not be able to respond to your request for information during this
extraordinary period.

Please resubmit your request in three months’ time when it is hoped we
will be in a position to respond within the statutory timeline.

 

PLEASE NOTE - However we have had a Board meeting today and the answer is
on the top of page 4
