In response to some serious incidents in designated centres, we have developed a series of regulatory and safety notices to inform providers of key safety precautions to take in relation to these incidents.

These notices (listed below) concern policy and procedures, regulator notices and safety notices. Also in this section are some public health guidelines from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC).
