Annual Statement Infection Control
The Bell Surgery
There have been no reports this year of any infection transmission incidents that require action.
All staff have been asked to carry out their Infection Control training via Blue Academy on-line training scheme. This has improved education and has been tailor-made for clinical and non-clinical staff.
A handwashing audit will be carried out this autumn to act as a reminder to all staff the need to be vigilant with their handwashing. New curtains have been placed in all clinical areas in line with our 6 monthly change and the blinds in the nurses’ clinic rooms have been changed. There have been no cold-chain incidents this calendar year. There are changes to the flu vaccine schedule with a different vaccine for the over 65s. Training and support has been offered to staff to ensure smooth running of these clinics. Hepatitis B has been added to the childhood primary immunisation programme and we are offering catch up appointments for school leavers and university students with incomplete MMR or MenACWY status.
