All NHS Organisations must ensure that they have effective systems in place to control healthcare associated infection. At Papworth Hospital we are committed to reducing avoidable healthcare associated infections and providing a clean, safe environment for our patients, their relatives and our staff.

As with all NHS organisations, we are required to demonstrate compliance with the Health and Social Care Act, Code of Practice for the NHS on the prevention and control of healthcare associated infections, 2008. In this regard, the Infection, Prevention and Control Team at Papworth Hospital ensure evidence based key policies and procedures are in place, with a programme of audit and surveillance to ensure practices are being implemented appropriately.

Where are we based?
