Guidance for Managers & Colleagues on Shielding

As lock-down restrictions are eased, vulnerable colleagues who have shielded at home will be invited to slowly and safely return to work in the NHS. This is likely to cause increased anxiety for some colleagues and will require compassion and flexibility when welcoming them back. This national NHS guidance via the link below has been developed to help:

  • People who have been shielding as they slowly start to return to work to feel less anxious and more supported.
  • Work colleagues and managers to understand what it may have been like for people who have shielded and how to compassionately welcome them back into the workplace.
