Please draw your attention to the update for vaccinations please see page 14:

In some clinical outpatient settings, such as vaccination/injection clinics, where contact with individuals is minimal, the need for single use PPE items for each encounter, for example, gloves and aprons is not necessary. Gloves and aprons are recommended when there is (anticipated) exposure to blood/body fluids or non-intact skin. Staff administering vaccinations/injections must apply hand hygiene between patients and wear a sessional facemask.

In light of COVID-19 and the current pressures on all of our services the ESCB website has a new dedicated Coronavirus webpage, which aims to provide a single point of access for anyone needing information and resources in relation to safeguarding children and young people.

These pages will outline any temporary changes to multi-agency safeguarding procedure and guidance. The Children and Families Service continue to prioritise support through continued contact with high risk child protection cases, our children-in-care and young people living in semi-independent accommodation. Given how quickly the situation is progressing the information detailed on this page will be reviewed and updated regularly.

There are also pages with general information – signposting to national and local advice, as well as resources for families.
