Infection prevention training

In this section

Training is already underway for anyone delivering care in the London Borough of Sutton. People who have already attended have given very positive feedback and agree that it was a valuable learning experience.

We are continually supporting our providers to apply evidence based Public Health principles of infection prevention control and outbreak management as required by the emerging evidence, to reduce the risk of transmission of infection. We are providing free face to face and virtual infection prevention and control training to all social care markets.

Face to face training

2 hour sessions are being held at Sutton Civic offices every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. 2 hour slots can be booked between 12pm and 5pm to provide greatest flexibility.

If you have available to you a large enough room to enable social distancing and a minimum of 5 people attending, additional training session can be organised at the location of your choice, within the Sutton Merton area.

Virtual training

If preferred online training can be arranged.

Both sessions will cover:

  • How does COVID-19 spread?
  • Hand hygiene
  • Wearing the right PPE for the job
  • How to ‘Don’ PPE appropriately
  • How to ‘Doff’ safely
  • Waste management

Candidates will demonstrate the donning and doffing procedures and will have the opportunity to ask questions specific to their practice.

All places must be booked through Sarah.Brown@swlondon.nhs.uk via email.
