Joined Up Care Derbyshire recognises the impact that healthcare-associated infections can have on individuals and we are committed to promoting effective, high-quality care in a safe environment across all services.

Infection prevention and control services are commissioned across Derby and Derbyshire to provide advice and support for GP practices, care homes and other community providers. The aim is to promote best practice and reduce the risk of infection to our population. 

Infection prevention and control teams are working closely with other such teams across the region to ensure processes are in place and required standards are met. Link forums are held for care homes and GP practice nurses to support these areas of work.
