NEW SET OF POLICIES APRIL 2023
This Policy is one of the ‘Standard infection control precautions’ (SICPs) referred to by NHS England in the National infection prevention and control manual (NIPCM) for England.
The Health and Social Care Act 2008: code of practice on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance requires that registered providers of health and social care “Provide and maintain a clean and appropriate environment in managed premises that facilitates the prevention and control of infections”.
A downloadable Community Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Policy which can be adopted by your organisation is available below. Alternatively, a complete set of IPC Policies for Care Home settings is available to purchase @ £89.99, including postage – details can be found on the flyer and resource order form.
