TUESDAY 30 JUNE 2020
AIHHP, BAA, BSA and BSHAA are pleased to release the latest updated version of their joint guidance. This builds on previously issued guidance and has been adapted to reflect the government change in alert level. It recommends a phased return to routine work, prioritising those with the greatest need, and guidance on future changes to alert level.
New elements in the updated document are highlighted in purple. The main changes are:
  • A phased return to routine assessment – prioritising those with the greatest need
  • An alert level table that can help inform practice if localised lockdown occurs (Appendix 9)
  • Clarity on wax removal methods, AGPs and wet perforations
  • Information on room ventilation
The guidance will be reviewed again on 30 August.
