Infection Prevention and Control

The Infection Prevention and Control Team (IPCT) provides a comprehensive service to the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital, including Cromer Hospital, Norfolk Kidney Centre and the Pain Clinic. Our aims are to work in partnership across these sites to:

  • Provide a safe, clean environment for our patients, staff, and visitors.
  • Reduce the number of Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAI)
  • Prevent and control outbreaks.
  • Monitor alert organisms, undertake audit and surgical site surveillance programmes.

Our Infection Prevention and Control Team includes Specialist Nurses, support workers and administrative staff working together with a Consultant Microbiologist and the Director of Infection Prevention and Control.
