Staff Training 

Inflection control training for clinical staff and non-clinical staff is up-to-date. MPMC IPC leads and relevant clinical staff  also attend regular IPC Champions training sessions offered by ICB. 

As part of MPMC IPC policy  our IPC leads  regulary engage with practice staff to develop systems and processes that lead to sustainable and reliable improvements in applying infection prevention and control practices.

MPMC has suitably qualified infection prevention and control staff who can provide expert advice on applying infection prevention and control in all care settings and on individual risk assessments, ensuring action is taken as required.
