Infection Control

Infection Control

Our aim is to provide clean, safe care for all of our patients and Infection Control is the responsibility of everyone working here at Hinchingbrooke Hospital. Our staff are supported to minimise the spread of infection through processes, advice and education provided by our Infection Control Team.

Concerned about infections?

If you are a patient at our hospital, or a relative of one of our patients, and are concerned about an infection issue we recommend you speak to the nurse in charge of the ward or department, who will then liaise with the infection control staff. Should you have a concern please raise it immediately with the ward staff. When reporting concerns, please try to give us as much information as possible, as this will help us to sort any problems highlighted, as quickly as possible. For more information on antibiotics, MRSA, C.diff or Viral Gastroenteritis, please see the relevant leaflets below:
