Infection Control

We are fully committed to the prevention of Health Care Associated Infections (HCAI’s) and to ensuring compliance with the Health Act (2008) code of practice for the prevention and control of healthcare associated infection across all commissioned and provided services.

Infection control is an integral part of all health care provision, in any health care setting. This page provides resources for health care professionals working in the primary care setting.  You will find access to infection control policies and guidance for use in the primary care setting, patient information leaflets, links to antimicrobial guidance and access to presentation slides for infection control link practitioners.
