About this Event

The Shield Next Steps

These sessions enable you to stay in touch with the Trust, ask questions, influence policy, and access support.

In previous meetings, attendees identified key areas that they would like to ask questions about, explore and understand further. We are planning to host discussions on the following, but please check closer to the event as Government announcements will influence the content and schedule.

Upcoming September sessions will review:

  • Risk Assessment policy with EWS (Employee Wellbeing Service)
  • Infection control with Martina Cummins, Deputy Director Infection Prevention & Control at Barts Health

We will continue to update on past sessions which covered:

  • Returning to site, remote working, risk assessments, fears and anxieties, and more

You will be sent an email with an online joining link and instructions before the sessions.


1. ShieldUS Campaign

Would you like a badge and lanyard to remind people to "please give you some space" and respect social distancing? We need your address! We have sent postcards and pins to over 200 Barts staff who have shielded and are hoping to reach more. We will happily send you them to wear on public transportation and if/when you have to return to site.

Register your information here.

2. Join a "Support Pod" with other Barts staff who are or have shielded

  • Email Ferzana Khan if you're interested (

Support Pods are in a trial stage. They will include 4-5 people who will come together 3 times to check-in on each other and exchange experiences. Groups will self-manages, but additional support and check-ins will be provided to each pod.
