I am pleased to advise that the public consultation on the Draft national infection prevention and control standards for community services has now commenced. The consultation will run for a period of six weeks and we will be accepting feedback until 5pm on Wednesday March 14th.

The draft standards, a background document outlining the evidence that informed the development of the draft standards and the consultation form are now available on the HIQA website, please click here.

Please advise your colleagues and anyone you think may be interested in making a submission about the consultation process.

Kind Regards
