Key learning points from recent outbreaks of covid19 in general practice
Please take a look at Key Learning Points from Recent Outbreaks for all practice staff, including nonclinical colleagues, regarding the correct use of PPE in surgery settings. We are still experiencing outbreaks due to staff not wearing their PPE in staff rooms. We would also respectfully remind practice staff that they should under no circumstances come into surgeries if they have any Covid19 symptoms at all. Practices are additionally reminded that all infection prevention and control (IPC enquiries should be channelled through the CCGs’ Incident Control Centre (ICC) which will contact the IPC team directly on your behalf. The ICC can be contacted on 01473-770174 or on email via firstname.lastname@example.org.
