Infection Prevention and Control in Childcare Settings

Revised health guidance now includes the amendments to the Infection Prevention and Control in Childcare Settings document produced by Health Protection Scotland.

It is aimed at relevant service providers (excluding schools and outdoor nurseries) although some elements will apply to all services, to the public who use such services and Care Inspectorate staff involved in regulatory activities. It explains how the national guidance document should be used, how it maps to the regulations, national care standards and quality theme, includes lessons from regulatory activities, useful references and websites.

It may be useful to include the guidance to your infection prevention and control folder or documents.
