The Infection Prevention Society, extending across all 5 countries in Ireland and the UK, provides a valuable support network for all IPC professionals. This short video, undertaken to strengthen the collaborative inter-country relationships in the organisation, sees experienced IPC professionals from each country give their views and insights into their role and the support network that is #One_IPS.
