Third sector roundtable: Preventing and controlling infection in community settings

Section: the ALLIANCE Location: Glasgow City Date of event: 06/08/2019 at 10:00 - 13:00

Voluntary Health Scotland is hosting a discussion with Health Protection Scotland and Coalition of Care and support Providers in Scotland.

VHS, HPS and CCPS would like to invite you to a round table meeting which will be an opportunity for third sector organisations to discuss the health protection issues they encounter in their work, find out more about the support and resources Health Protection Scotland (HPS) can offer, and share any good policies and practice.

The round table is also an opportunity to explore whether the NHS Scotland National Infection Prevention and Control Manual is a useful resource for the third sector, and whether other resources would be useful. We will also discuss how best to develop further engagement between HPS and our sector, taking into account Public Health Scotland’s future role in leading partnership working, innovation and meaningful change across the whole public health system.

Registration for this round table is open to people working in the third sector only. They particularly welcome your participation if you provide care services in residential or community settings, including people’s own homes, or if you work with particularly vulnerable groups, e.g. people who are street homeless and/or injecting illegal drugs, or people who are unpaid carers.
