Bug Control membership gives you access to our education platform (LMS), full of infection control training, quizzes and resources. Our LMS lets you track staff training progress and award certificates for course completion.
Bug Control membership also includes a direct line to our clinical team for infection control queries.
It’s hard to assess your facility objectively, which is why Bug Control offer independent audits. One of our expert IPC consultants will come to your facility and review your cleaning and infection control processes, as they’re performed on the floor.
We provide a comprehensive report and action plan to help you prioritise training and resources for the future.
