These steps are potentially helpful but it’s important that the guidance filters down to all levels of hospital staff. We already have examples of NHS guidance (e.g. on the issuing of medical certificates for sick leave) that are often ignored by hospital staff because they are either unaware of their responsibilities or have never been trained in how to follow the guidance.
