I would like to say I have used the Preventing Infection Workbooks for both existing staff, as a refresher and for new starters. The booklets have received high praise from the individuals using them and they have been a great tool for provoking important discussions relating to hygiene standards.
Mandy McCarthy-Ward, Care Home Training Manager
