Preventing Infection

Preventing Infection

Minimising the risk to patients by preventing hospital-acquired infections is our top priority at Gloucestershire Royal and Cheltenham General Hospitals.

Public Health England set  targets to reduce the number of cases of the 2 main infections - MRSA bacteraemia and C-difficile.

We are also required to report certain other infections to Public Health England - these include bloodstream infections including  MSSA and E-coli. This data enables national trends to be monitored.
