HIS and UKHSA are currently working to redevelop and relaunch the Foundation Course in IPC course for Spring 2023 in a blended learning format, via our new e-Learning platform.

"Coming to the end of the 4th day of the Foundation Course in Infection Prevention and Control at PHE, Colindale. Really good overview of infection control from national leaders in the field. Sold out quickly, fully recommend for next year."
