We co-ordinate national surveillance and epidemiology. By supporting boards in healthcare associated infection incidents, we reduce excessive surveillance and contribute to outbreak management.
We have ways of delivering these valuable services, enabling us to provide expert advice and quality improvement tools on:
- Healthcare associated infections
- antimicrobial resistance
- infection prevention and control
- public health microbiology
- specialist epidemiology.
