PERFORMANCE: Board papers for Berkshire West CCGs have warned that the “joint focus on infection control must be maintained to ensure that changes in practice are effective in controlling infection.”

They show that the number of C.Difficile for the patients which the group sof CCGs are responsible for stood at 106 in January against a total limit of 194 for the year.

 A C Difficile “zero tolerance” campaign has been launched across the CCGs which has also approved the creation of an infection control nurse post for the community.
