As we are not commissioned to provide an IPC service outside of North Yorkshire and York, we are unable to offer free of charge advice outside of this area. For IPC advice contact your local Team or we can offer out of area IPC advice on a chargeable basis, please contact us for further details.

As the lead for infection prevention and control within a large CCG I have found the ‘Preventing Infection Workbook for General Practice’ an extremely valuable resource. The very positive feedback that I have received from the general practices indicates that the Workbook is being widely used not only as an update for infection prevention and control, but as reference for everyday practice.
