Training and support sessions for providers during COVID-19

New Infection Prevention Control (IPC) training

A new and vital training support offer is now in place for all Domiciliary Care and Supported Living providers.

It has been developed collaboratively with partners across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland councils, including Public Health, as well as the CCGs and the Leicestershire Homecare Alliance, in response to the Leicester conurbation lockdown. 

The Infection Control presentation covers the essentials of IPC detailed below: 

  • Standards of infection prevention and control 
  • Principles of hand hygiene (including a useful video) 
  • Use of PPE including sessional use 
  • Problems with using PPE
  • Cleaning and decontamination 
  • Disposal of waste 
  • Handling hygiene 

The presentation is intended as a refresher with the addition of essential information pertaining to Covid-19 which staff can view from smart phones, tablets and PCs.  

Alternatively, you could use this presentation as part of your training schedule, staff meetings and supervisions. 

Given the current lockdown within Leicester and parts of Leicestershire, we strongly encourage you to view the new resource and share with your staff as a matter of urgency.

FFP3 mask fit testing support

In Issue 20 of the provider bulletin, we talked about how partners across Leicester Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) have come together to offer fit testing support to homes and other services in difficulty.

The fit testing will predominantly take place in the Training Room at the Croft Depot, Arbor Road, Croft, but St. John’s House (City) and Coalville Community Resource Centre will also be used if required. 

To arrange a booking please contact enquirylinequality&contracts@leics.gov.uk leaving a contact telephone number. The booking administrator will be in touch thereafter.

When booking, please inform the administrator of your home’s or service’s FFP3 status. Staff attending must bring the FFP3 mask you are currently using in your service, so that these can be fit tested; if you don’t have any FFP3 masks, one will be provided for the test and an initial supply arranged.

Other necessary information will be discussed at the time of booking.
