Here at NNUH there is a dedicated Infection Prevention and Control [IP&C] Team committed to preventing and minimising the spread of infection. Headed by the Director of Infection Prevention and Control [DIPC] the team also includes specialist nurses, support workers and administrative support. Our role is to reduce the risk of patients, visitors and staff from sustaining a Healthcare Associated Infection [HCAI’s]. We are constantly improving practice to reduce the incidence of infections acquired in hospital. To see more about our work, go to our department page.
