COVID-19 - BASHH Member Information

18th March 2020

Dear BASHH member,

In the context of fast-moving COVID-19 developments, a page has been set up on the BASHH website to help provide members with a central resource that can support local responses and contingency planning. The ambition is to keep this page updated with useful items as the situation develops in the coming weeks.

At present, the page contains summary responses from a BASHH member survey circulated on Friday last week, which asked for feedback on local COVID-19 contingency plans that were being put in place, and to encourage the sharing of tips and advice. The page also includes a pandemic flu contingency plan paper authored by Simon Barton and Jackie Sherrard in 2007, and which has principles and recommendations you may find useful in the current environment.

The page is accessible to BASHH members here:

Further items will be added to this page in the coming days and weeks. If you have any suggestions or resources you would like to share in the meantime, please get in touch with

Thank you for all your continued support and stamina. We will get through this together.

With best wishes,

BASHH President
Dr John McSorley
