***This document is currently under review as it is now out of date. The content of this document should be read and used with caution.*** IPC is a crucial component of safe systems providing health and social care. It is inextricably linked to anti-microbial resistance and therefore has a central role in health and social care and public health services. Its importance is underlined within the Annual Report of the Chief Medical Officer (Davies 2013) and forthcoming UK five year Anti-microbial Resistance Strategy.
