This Policy is one of the ‘Standard infection control precautions’ (SICPs) referred to by NHS England and NHS Improvement.
The cleanliness of the environment is important to support infection prevention and control, help reduce the incidence of healthcare-associated infections and ensure service user confidence.
All staff should know and understand the importance of thorough cleaning.
