The Dudley Infection Prevention Link Practitioner Network has been devised by the Health Protection team (Office of Public Health). Each care Home in Dudley now has a nominated ‘Link Practitioner’ who will act as a role model and visible advocate for infection prevention within their workplace.
Each Link Practitioner will be working closely with the Health Protection team to improve infection control practices within homes and reduce the risk of infections occurring in residents. If your care home has not been contacted to nominate a Link Practitioner, please call Dudley Council Plus and ask to speak to the Health Protection Team.
Best practice documents and resources for Link Practitioners are available below.
