Infection Control Fund Return
To access the Government’s infection control fund the Council is required to complete and publish a report or return. The return outlines the progress made by the Council, and its partners, around supporting care providers to control COVID-19 infections. This includes highlighting where more support is needed and any issues.
The report focuses on five key areas that, together, will help prevent or reduce the number of COVID-19 cases in care homes:
- Infection control
- Personal Protective Equipment and Clinical Equipment
- Clinical support.
The first report was submitted to the Government on 29 May 2020, further reports are due in June and September 2020.
