Standard precautions Infection Prevention and Control Guidance (Policy) for General Practice

Standard precautions underpin routine safe practice, protecting patients and staff from infection.

By applying standard precautions at all times and to all service users, best practice becomes an embedded culture and the risks of both known and unknown infection are minimised.

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.
