Infection Control

Awanui Labs provides infection control advice to private hospitals, rest homes, residential care facilities and general practices. A list of our infection control staff and their contact details can be found on the Infection Control Key Staff webpage.

Education sessions, publications and advice are also available from the CCDHB Community Infection Prevention and Control Service. These education sessions include outbreak management, general infection control and care of clients with multi-drug-resistant organism (e.g. MRSA).

The CCDHB Community Infection Control Team also liaises closely with Regional Public Health on matters of public health concern (like vomiting outbreaks). You can contact the CCDHB Infection Control Community Service, directly on: (04) 385 5999 ext 6515.
