Overview

Back in 2016 Former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt launched new plans to reduce infections in the NHS. He announced government plans to halve the number of gram-negative bloodstream infections by 2020. The programme of actions included the Serious Infection CQUIN 2017-2019.

 

In London in February 2019 together with 500 colleagues from across the “whole health economy” we will review the CQUIN results and look forward to see what progress is still required to achieve the 2020 targets in Infection Prevention & Control. We will review the latest NHSE/PHE/NHSI reporting trends and share local best practice on subjects including Sepsis, E. coli, UTIs and SSIs. We will also showcase the latest industry innovations and technologies in our networking area.
