Respiratory tract infections: infection control

inf ctrl

Public Health England has published Infection control precautions to minimise transmission of acute respiratory tract infections in healthcare settings.  This document summarises recommendations for the prevention and control of acute respiratory infections in healthcare settings for clinical and public health colleagues.  The guidance explores transmission routes, hygiene and the use of personal protective equipment.  It replaces the HPA Version 1 guidance document of the same name, which was reviewed and updated in December 2014.
