Free online training on the use of FFP3 masks is now available for providers to enable their staff to become their own in-house fit testers. The fit testers do not have to be medically trained nor state registered.
A change of FFP3 mask type requires carers to be refit tested to the new brand of masks and having their own in-house fit testers will enable providers to have a responsive approach for their staff and clients.
The model of FFP3 masks available within the Devon system is about to change to GVS_F31000 and Optimum Medical HY9330 with other masks are expected to be available from late November or early December.
There is limited stock of the 3M and Cardinal brands left within the Devon system. It is inevitable that carer staff will have to be refit tested during the winter period to the new type of masks.
Two fit-testing training are now available on Monday 2 November from 1-4pm and on Friday 6 November from 9am to 12noon and places can be booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
