Infection Prevention and Control
At the Portobello Clinic we are committed to delivering excellent service and providing and maintaining a safe, clean and infection free environment for our patients, staff and visitors.
The practice takes all the necessary steps to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections, other infectious diseases, injury and contamination to staff and patients.
- We have Designated Infection Prevention and Control Leads who also oversee the appropriate cleaning of the practice environment and equipment
- We perform infection prevention audits, risk assessments and have regular cleaning and maintenance inspections to ensure that the highest infection prevention and control standards are maintained
- We provide all members of staff with proper training to ensure everyone working at the Clinic understands the need to work to prevent and control infections during their daily work
If you have any concerns regarding the cleanliness of infection control of the surgery please contact the Manager or one of our GPs.
