Infection Control Statement

Theatre Royal Surgery is committed to reducing acquired infections and has policies and procedures in place 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 GPs 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 regular audits are completed.

Our infection control lead at Theatre Royal Surgery is Catherine Crosland, Lead Practice Nurse.
