Infection Control


Langley House views infection prevention and control as an essential component of safe patient care.  We follow best practice principles:

  • We have an infection control champion within the surgery acting as the practice’s named lead who attends CCG infection control link network meetings
  • We work with NHS England/CCG infection control team for any infection control surveillance queries/contribute to root cause analysis
  • We audit infection control monthly and conduct risk assessments annually, updating our procedures as required and trying to work around the myriad of problems presented by a listed building. This has included making use of the Infection Prevention Society quality improvement tool.
  • Infection control training is covered at all staff induction and updated annually for clinical and non-clinical staff.

All healthcare workers are responsible for maintaining high standards of infection control, thus protecting patients from infection.
