Infection Prevention and Control


Staff at all levels of our organisation are aware of the essential need and responsibility to maintain high standards of infection control at all times.

We have a dedicated team in place who ensure effective arrangements are in place for the provision of a full infection control service including policy production, surveillance, audits, education and training.

Each year we run an in-house programme to ensure a high uptake of seasonal flu immunisation, to protect patients, clients, staff and their families. All employees are offered the immunisation. In 2018/19 ECCH was the highest performing community health organisation in the country for staff flu vaccinations. A total of 84.1% of ECCH staff were vaccinated. The national average was 68.6%.
