A new Infection Prevention and Control Helpline is now providing a free service to Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations, Community Pharmacies and General Practice.
The pilot program is a joint venture between Victoria’s six PHNs, led by Murray PHN, and funded by the Victorian Department of Health. The service is being delivered by the Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA), supported by subject matter experts.
The free helpline is manned by two full-time Registered Nurses and supported by three infection prevention control specialists. It is now available to all Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations, general practices and pharmacy staff between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday. Simply call 1800 312 968 to receive advice. Learn more and access resources.
