The team is here to support the effective implementation of infection prevention and management in Primary Care

The team works closely with local authority partners and UKHSA to support and guide Primary Care colleagues in:

  • GP surgeries
  • Dental practices
  • Pharmacies
  • Optometry

Working together for a patient-centred approach to support and guide in a variety of ways, including:

  • Education - colleague training
  • Information - regular newsletters
  • Support visits
  • Decontamination guidance


"As a GP surgery we found the new standards of healthcare cleanliness document slightly overwhelming to start with.  The document was very much based on secondary care settings.  With the help of the IPC team, we were able to implement the guidance seamlessly into our setting.   Lisa and Michelle attended the surgery for an assurance visit at the beginning of the year, they provided invaluable support in a warm and friendly manner.  We have had many queries along the way and the team have responded quickly and with sound, evidence-based information. We are very lucky to have them." Highbridge Medical Centre
