St George’s reviews how it will operate following government guidance to higher education providers. This was last updated 24 February 2022. 

The unique operating circumstances through the phase of Covid restrictions have prompted learning and reflections which we hope to now use to improve the experiences of students and staff at St George’s.

Staff can find information on these pages to support them to adapt to new ways of working.

Future ways of working

Following a staged approach to our return to site planning, we now enter the final phase, shaped through the future ways of working project.

The future ways of working group have now sought input from staff across St George’s and have agreed a number of key points:

  • All members of staff will be expected to work on-site for a proportion of their time.
  • All will be eligible to request flexible working in line with a new Flexible Working Policy.

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, second and third phases have now been completed.

Institutional risk assessment

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. The version below is in the process of being updated to reflect changes effective from 19 July.

Personal risk assessment
If you have been shielding, are considered clinically extremely vulnerable or have individual concerns about the risk of returning to site, you and your manager can complete an individual risk assessment (Word) to consider what amendments to your working arrangements might be most appropriate for you. This is not a requirement for all staff.
