Infection Control Statement
Theatre Royal Surgery is committed to reducing acquired infections and has in place policies and procedures to achieve this. We aim to keep the surgery clean and tidy and to offer a safe environment for all our staff and patients.
Our GP’s and nursing team follow procedures to ensure that treatment and the clinical equipment used meets infection control guidance. A review of infection control policies is undertaken annually to ensure that they are adequate and meet national guidance and all clinical staff undertake annual training on infection control.
We carry out an annual infection control audit to make sure that our infection control procedures are working and an audit of minor surgery was recently undertaken in which no infections were reported.
Our Infection Control lead at The Theatre Royal Surgery is:-
Catherine Crosland, Lead nurse
