Viral gastroenteritis/Norovirus Infection Prevention and Control Guidance (Policy) for General Practice

Norovirus is the most common cause of viral gastroenteritis in the UK. Many people refer to it as ‘gastric flu’ or the ‘winter vomiting bug’. It is a highly infectious virus spreading easily from person to person.

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.
