Care Homes


Each care home is allocated an Infection Control Nurse/Practitioner who will visit the home and give advice, training, audit and support.

Care homes should inform the Infection Control team if they have 2 or more residents or staff with symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting or flu like symptoms. The Infection Control team will help you manage the outbreak and put the necessary control measures in place.

Infection Control Link Care Home meetings are held on a quarterly basis in each of the boroughs and details can be found below.

Care home staff are welcome to ring/email us with any queries they have.
