Working over 7 days
Where there is a need for 7 days service provision during the major incident period - suggested good practice, would be for a rota arrangement:
- Establish and communicate clear deputy arrangements for people (so people know who to talk to when a decision is required)
- Ensure two weekdays off for staff who are covering weekends
- Prepare a weekly rota for 7 days provision with clarity about supporting roles
- Limiting annual leave to 1-week blocks.
