Infection Prevention and Control Banner

As a Trust we take our responsibilities for the prevention and control of infection very seriously:

  • we are committed to preventing avoidable infections
  • we aim to consistently provide clean, safe care to patients, their families and the wider population
  • Our Infection Prevention and Control Team, as well as providing a service to the Trust, also provide a service to Worcestershire GPs and Nursing Homes, promoting a consistent approach across care outside of an acute hospital.

What should I do if I have any concerns about infection prevention and control or cleaning standards?

We encourage patients and visitors to raise any concerns that they have as they arise. Please speak to the nurse or manager of the ward, clinic or department where you have the concern. If you would like to know more about infection prevention and control within the Trust please contact our Nurse Consultant on: 01386 502552.

It is important that if you are unwell you refrain from visiting where possible. Particularly if you have any of the following conditions:

  • diarrhoea or vomiting illness
  • colds and flu like illness
  • Chicken Pox or undiagnosed rashes


The Trust is committed to the promotion of good infection prevention practices but we realise this can only be achieved if all members of the team play their part. This team includes anyone who works in the Trust but we also believe that patients and visitors can play an important part in the prevention and control of infection. Thank you for your support.
