Advice for Employees

Swine flu - employeeBPP recognises that employees may be concerned about Swine Flu and require clarification on what to do should they or a direct family member become infected.

We have produced a leaflet for all employees which summarises the latest advice, how to protect yourself, what to do and who to contact should you fall ill, what measures BPP are taking to reduce the spread of Swine Flu in offices and study centres, plus useful contact information.
