HPS is currently working towards delivery of comprehensive evidence-based guidance which will form Chapter 4 of the National Infection Prevention and Control Manual (NIPCM) on the built environment and decontamination.

In the interim an aide memoire has been produced to provide best practice recommendations to be implemented in the event of a healthcare water-associated infection incident or outbreak.

This will ensure clinical staff, estates and facilities staff, and infection prevention and control teams have an understanding of the preventative measures required and the appropriate actions that should be taken.

It can be accessed in Chapter 3 of NIPCM under ‘Prevention and management of healthcare water-associated infection incidents/outbreaks’.​
