One of the most common forms of food poisoning in the UK is Campylobacter. Most people who catch it recover quickly, but for children, elderly people and those who are already ill, catching it can pose serious health risks. The good news is, most cases are preventable through understanding how it spreads and what best practice personal hygiene looks like.
This eLearning course will show you everything you need to know about Campylobacter. It’s an essential course if you serve or prepare food for others or are in a profession like environmental health. The course has been designed by our tutors to make the whole learning experience engaging and straightforward.
