Infection Control SOP
What Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should pharmacy teams be using?
Public Health England (PHE) has updated its guidance on the wearing of facemasks in primary and community health care settings. In summary, the recommendation is that all pharmacy staff now wear Type IIR facemasks, unless the pharmacy is COVID-19 secure, including all staff being able to maintain a social distance from one another.
Regular use of alcohol based hand sanitiser will kill virus on your hands.
When serving at the counter, maintain your position behind the screen.
Limit customer number to 2/3 in the pharmacy. Also, avoid close working with colleagues.
