PERFORMANCE: The north London specialist trust has recorded three cases of clostridium difficile for the year so far, equivalent to its full-year limit.

A report to the board of NHS North Central London said: “[The trust] has reached its annual threshold of three incidents; root cause analysis reports have been received for all the breaches indicating the need for tighter anti-microbial stewardship.

“This performance will be discussed with the trust at the infection control meeting this month.”
