The Health and Social Care Act 2008 Code of Practice

The Health and Social Care Act 2008 Code of Practice on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance has been published on the Department of Health website, for reference, download or printing.

In addition, the Department of Health has also published the final impact assessment for this document and the Department of Health response document to the consultation on a draft of it, earlier in 2010.

The above documents are all available on the following link:

The DoH also wishes to alert existing registered provider contacts that a new Code of Practice document has been produced; there are no substantial changes for most providers.

However, providers may wish to examine the new version of the Code document in order to check the bibliography for updated references relevant to their sector.

The DoH wishes to thank everyone involved in producing the Code document.
