Staff Update: 7 October 2020

Corporate Workplan

I am delighted that the Bield Housing & Care Corporate Workplan approved by our Senior Management Team has been shared with colleagues aross Bield. 

Please take time to read our plan for the next 18 months and engage with us in coming weeks to tell us what you think.

New Mobile Phones

We have also communicated with development staff regarding new smart phones which are on their way. This is for Development Managers and Deputy Development Managers, or nominated staff.  Guidance has gone out to all developments and any set up or technical queries should be directed to

Flu Vaccinations

It is highly recommended by NHS Scotland that people who are recommended to get a Flu vaccination should take up this offer through their GP. We have been told by CCPS that Key workers are also being allowed to have Flu vaccinations through NHS. The detail of this should be shared with the sector in the coming days.

At Bield Housing & Care your Health & Well being is and has been a key focus in all that we have done during Covid -19 pandemic.  To that end we encourage you to :

  • Take up the opportunity to be vaccinated should you be invited by your GP
  • Take up the forthcoming guidance for key worker staff when we are informed about the process ( a further communication will be sent to inform you on how to access this Government offer)
  • If you are not eligible for the above and a  front line member of staff working in the developments, Bield Housing & Care will cover the cost of a private flu vaccination which you can access via your local chemists and claim this back on expenses.
