We caught up with Professor Paul Heath to find out more about the latest Covid-19 vaccine news and how vaccinations will eventually be rolled out.
The overarching aim of the Return to Site project is to recommission services on site in a safe and secure way where it is sensible and necessary to do so and ensuring the health and safety of the St George’s community. The first phase and the second phase have now been completed.
Phase 3 objectives have been delivered; and the project team has changed into an operational group to oversee this session’s activities.
The below guidance has been amended for a period of National Restriction starting 5November 2020. (National Restriction guidance for HE) and (National Restrictions 5 Nov).
Currently, it has been confirmed that universities should remain open. This means St George’s will, subject to any further national or local Government announcements, continue to offer essential on-site teaching as scheduled.
Further details of the phases can be found here.

In line with government requirements, we have published a risk assessment, setting out how the University will be managing risks associated with the transmission of the Covid-19 infection.
As an employer, the University has a legal responsibility to protect workers and others from risk to their health and safety. This means that the University needs to think about the risks they face and do everything reasonably practicable to minimise them, recognising it is not possible to completely eliminate the risk of Covid-19.
The document will be subject to change following amendments to Government guidance and changes that may arise on-site.
