We are in a fast moving, evolving situation and, as with any new strain of infection, there are multiple sources of guidance and information produced for staff.
We recognise that this can be confusing for staff. Therefore, we have set up a dedicated email address and phone number, directing you to published advice and guidance regarding Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) and PPE procurement.
Contact details for IPC
- Email address: email@example.com
- Telephone: 020 3816 3403
The email address and telephone number will be monitored by Dee Malone who has significant experience in IPC, Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm.
Contact details for PPE procurement
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The email address is monitored 7 days a week, including bank holidays.
More information, including emergency PPE procurement can be found below.
Please note, the team will not provide clinical advice on the management of individual patients.
PHE have issued some guidance on the wearing of face coverings which we need to post on the NCL IPC (internet and intranet) sites please. Face coverings are not classed as PPE, and do not replace the requirements for people to maintain good hand hygiene, observe social distancing etc – therefore, it is not appropriate to place this guidance within any of the current tabs, it will have to sit out on both websites.
