Infection Control

Central Manchester University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) recognises the obligation placed upon it by the Health Act 2006 - Code of Practice for the Prevention and Control of Health Care associated Infections.

The Trust supports the priniciple that infections must be prevented wherever possible or where this is not possible, minimised to an irreducible level with effective arrangements and policies for surveillance, prevention and control of infection within the Trust.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, places responsibilities on the Trust and individual employees to do what is reasonable to adequately control the risks of infection to staff and others.

Under this legislation all employees have the responsibilites to cooperate with the Trust on matters of health and safety and in the context of this policy particularly regarding the reduction of risks from healthcare associated infections.

Infection control policies, procedures and protocols are designed to outline the prinicples and responsibilities associated with the prevention and control of infection in a health care setting and can be found on the intranet.
