The prevention and control of infection is a
top priority for Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS
All NHS organisations must ensure that they
have effective systems in place to control healthcare associated
infection and we are fully committed to ensuring resources are
allocated to effectively protect patients, their relatives, staff
and visiting members of the public.
Nothing has had higher priority for the Trust
than improving our performance in tackling hospital-acquired
infections such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile.
A dedicated Infection Control Team has been
created headed by the Director of Infection Prevention and Control.
A Consultant Medical Microbiologist is designated as the Infection
Control Doctor and team also includes specialist nurses, a clinical
scientist involved in surveillance and microbiologists specialising
in adult medicine and paediatrics.
The Infection Control Team is committed to
preventing and minimising the spread of infection.
