Document History

Archived publications are still available but should be used in the context that practice may have moved on or new technology emerged since their production. Some of these documents may not have been superseded or replaced due to their content not being healthcare specific. Documents marked historic are relevant to the time they were produced, such as case studies and may not be updated or superseded in the future. Parts of Health Building Note 25 (HBN 25) are superseded by CFPP 01-04: 'Choice Framework for local Policy and Procedures 01-04 - decontamination of linen for health and social care: management and provision manual'; 'Choice Framework for local Policy and Procedures 01-04 - decontamination of linen for health and social care: social care manual'; 'Choice Framework for local Policy and Procedures 01-04 - decontamination of linen for health and social care: guidance for linen processors implementing BS EN 14065' and 'Choice Framework for local Policy and Procedures 01-04 - decontamination of linen for health and social care: engineering, equipment and validation manual'.
