Revised code of practice for infection control

The Health and Social Care Act 2008: code of practice on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance

The Department of Health has published a revised The Health and Social Care Act 2008 Code of Practice on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance. This revised version of the code of practice replaces the edition published in 2010 and applies to NHS bodies and providers of independent healthcare and adult social care in England, including primary dental care, independent sector ambulance providers and primary medical care providers. The code now reflects the changes required to meet The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 and the role of infection prevention (including cleanliness) in optimising antimicrobial use and reducing antimicrobial resistance.
