Infection Prevention and Control

Infection Prevention and Control is about preventing infections particularly those that are associated with healthcare – for example, ways of preventing infections being spread on the hands of health care workers or carers.

We all have a part to play in controlling infection.

Our Commitment

Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust takes preventing, minimising and controlling the risk of healthcare associated infection to patients / staff / visitors and carers very seriously.  Ways in which we do this include:

  • Education and training in infection control for all staff employed by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust
  • Staff using good handwashing technique or using alcohol handrubs
  • The use of disposable aprons and gloves
  • High standards of cleanliness
  • Making sure equipment is clean
  • How to recognise signs of infection
  • Educating patients/healthcare professionals and carers
