We anticipate that a return to site for staff will be rolled out in four phases. This may change depending on further Government guidance. Some phases, affecting different groups of staff, may run concurrently.

First phase

During this phase, in line with Government guidelines, anyone who can work from home should continue working from home. 

In this phase, we are aiming for the restoration of all laboratory-based scientific research to site. This will begin with a voluntary return for research staff based in Jenner Wing working on non-Covid-19 related research in three waves at weekly intervals. Further detailed information will follow from Professor Jon Friedland later today.

For this group, travel into St George’s must be for lab work/placement only. Staff should go directly to their laboratory/place of work and not linger on site. Any writing up should be done at home. 

Second phase
In this second phase, some basic services for students, such as the computer room, study spaces, and printing services, will be restored, alongside the Radiography suite and OSCE cubicles. Preparations will be undertaken to establish socially-distanced teaching facilities. Access to site will be facilitated to allow the Midwifery School move to Kingston Hill. 
Third phase
We anticipate that this phase will include the commencement of 2020/21 academic year courses from their normal start date. Teaching will be delivered online where possible, but this phase will include the resumption of essential onsite, hands-on teaching, including clinical skills, lab practicals, use of the dissecting room and the simulation suite, which cannot be delivered online. 
Fourth phase
The site will be open for all staff and students, in line with future Government guidance. Some operations may continue to be delivered remotely, depending on business requirements at the time.
