Laundry including uniforms Infection Prevention and Control Guidance (Policy) for General Practice

The use of linen such as blankets, pillowcases, fabric hand towels in General Practice is not recommended as it is not practical to launder items between each patient. Best practice is to use disposable paper products, e.g. paper towels, couch roll.

A downloadable Community Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Guidance document for General Practice which can be adopted as a Policy by your organisation is available below. Also suitable for use within Dental Practice and Podiatry.

Alternatively, a complete set of IPC Guidance documents are available to purchase @ £69.99 – details can be found on the flyer and resource order form.
