Infection Control

Infection Prevention and Control

Welcome to the Infection Prevention and Control team.

We have a number of responsibilities including:

  • training staff in the prevention of the spread of infection
  • ensuring patients, carers and visitors are aware of how to avoid bringing and spreading infections in hospitals
  • monitoring any infection risks
  • early and rapid diagnosis - which should result in effective treatment and containment of infections
  • reporting to the Trust and other bodies incidents of infection e.g. MRSA

All of these activities have helped the Trust maintain a very low infection rate over successive years. 

The results of audits of areas like hand washing are made visible around the Trust and demonstrate how seriously infection prevention and control is taken.
