Recently, members raised with the PSA that Legal Aid Solicitors were expected to escort unvaccinated clients to have rapid antigen testing.
We quickly raised this with the current Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO). As well as being a potentially unsafe practice, this is not the role of a Legal Aid Solicitor.
The acting CEO and Head of Human Resources both agreed this should not be happening and was is not within the scope of a Legal Aid Solicitor’s role.
