Infection Prevention and Control

Under the Health and Social Care Act 2008, the Code of Practice for the Control and Prevention of Infections and related guidance (DH, 2010) requires all Trusts to have clear arrangements for the effective prevention, detection and control of healthcare associated infection, including the procedures to be taken in the event of an outbreak of infection. This policy sets out the Trust’s arrangements for the effective prevention, detection and control of healthcare associated infection.
