Infection Prevention and Control


The current Covid-19 is evolving rapidly with increasing numbers of people testing positive for the virus and sadly dying across the UK and here in London.

There are multiple sources of information and guidance for staff covering a wide range of topics, including; how to reduce the spread of infection, using PPE appropriately, as well as caring for people in community settings.

This webpage aims to signpost staff working across Health and Social care to most up to date guidance in one place.

Information and links to the latest guidance will be posted on the website daily, and updated as guidance as necessary.

We are in a fast moving, evolving situation and, as with any new strain of infection, there are multiple sources of guidance and information produced for staff.

We recognise that this can be confusing for staff. Therefore, we have set up a dedicated email address and phone number, directing you to published advice and guidance regarding Infection Prevention and Control (IPC).
