Infection control

Hand Wash for infection control

At Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, we have a strong commitment to ensuring we play our part in preventing the spread of infection. 

We design our buildings with infection control principle central to the role they will play, and ensure we equip our staff to meet with highest standards.

We have an excellent record in ensuring our staff are kept up to date, through regular training, practice development and supporting resources to ensure we use the latest knowledge and research when we plan our approach.

We also work closely with our local healthcare providers to ensure that the patients journey, using various providers of healthcare, is as seamless as it can be.

We respond quickly when we identify a possible infection in those in our care, and then work proactively to ensure the minimum impact to those who use our services.
