Linen, including uniforms and workwear 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 IPC Guidance Policy for General Practice which can be adopted by your organisation is available below. Also suitable for use within Dental Practice and Podiatry.
Alternatively, a complete set of IPC Policies are available to purchase @ £85.99, including postage – details can be found on the flyer and resource order form.
