Welcome to Adult Social Care
Infection Control in Care Homes - FREE Champions and Accreditation programme open to all Care homes across East Sussex

East Sussex County Council and the three Clinical Commissioning Groups in East Sussex have commissioned Infection Prevention Solutions to provide a FREE Infection Control in Care Homes Champions and Accreditation programme to all Care Homes across East Sussex.  The company is the UK market leader in infection prevention and control, RCN accredited and currently runs similar programmes across the country.

The Infection Control in Care Homes Champions and Accreditation Programme will be offered free to all care homes and will be available for a time limited period only.  It consists of:

  • Free training and package of training support (including a named contact from the company) for an identified infection control ?Champion? for each Care Home
  • Opportunity to join an accreditation system to provide assurance of good infection control practice for each Care Home

The programme has been created for registered Care Homes to help them meet the legal requirement for infection prevention and control with the Code of Practice of the Health and Social Care Act 2008. The aim of the training will be to provide the knowledge and skills to disseminate, educate, audit and support the Care Home in the delivery of infection prevention and control standards.

Whilst participation in this programme is entirely voluntary, we would like to strongly encourage you to get involved and find out more as this support will only be available for a limited time and is entirely free.

For more information or to express an interest in becoming involved, please contact:

Helen Cheney, Health Protection Specialist on 01273 336834 Helen.cheney@eastsussex.gov.uk.
