Infection Prevention

The Trust’s aim is to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and visitors by preventing all avoidable infections. Cleanliness of the hospital and a rigorous infection prevention campaign are key priorities in the Trust's efforts to combat MRSA and other healthcare associated infections.

We are proud of our achievements in infection prevention and have performed very well against all the targets set by the Strategic Health Authority in relation to the reduction of healthcare associated infections.

There is an Infection Prevention and Control Team in the Trust and this highly trained team works closely with staff to monitor and help prevent the spread of infection within the Trust, giving regular updates on infection prevention and control.

If you wish to contact any member of the ‘infection prevention and control team’ please telephone 0151 600 1326 or 0151 600 1057 during office hours.
