Question and answer
describe local and organisational policies relevant to the prevention and control of infection
That's things like hand-washing, use of autoclaves/single-use disposable equipment, disposal of clinical waste etc. [ There's a wealth of information available and strong guidance for medical clinicians can be found in the Royal College of Nurses (under 'infection prevention and control') and Care Quality Commission (particularly under 'outcomes') websites among others; a lot of it can be
applied to other sectors. If you do a general web-search on 'infection control policy', you'll get a lot of hits. Some dental surgeries, GP practices and hospitals post their whole policies on their websites. Broadly, you can define a GP practice's infection control policy as 'local' but the PCT's policy as 'organisational'; you can also reduce that down to policies applying to a particular clinical room against the clinic as a whole. ]
