Infection Control Statement

In line with the Health and Social Care Act 2008: Code of practice on prevention and control of infection and its related guidance, we are committed to maintaining a safe working environment for all of our staff, patients and visitors to the Practice and to help prevent the spread of healthcare associated infections

Aims and objectives

The Practice will take the following measures to fulfil this commitment:

  • Staff working practices will comply with the most up to date infection control policies and procedures
  • Regular audits by the designated infection control team to verify outcomes and identify problems and/or areas for improvement
  • Risk assessments carried out as appropriate
  • Staff training appropriate to their individual role and responsibilities
  • Annual review of policies and procedures to ensure national guidelines continue to be met
