Infection: prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections in primary and community care

National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)

This guideline provides a blueprint for the infection prevention and control precautions that should be applied by everyone involved in the care of people who are having treatment or care either in their own home or elsewhere in the community (for example, in a care home, a GP surgery, health centre, school or prison and by the ambulance service) where NHS healthcare is provided or commissioned.
