Brief biography

Lisa is the Lead Nurse and Manager for Infection Prevention and Control for Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. She finds IPC an exciting and challenging speciality and is keen to raise the profile of IPC and for it to be seen as a support service rather than a ‘policing’ service. Her particular interest is Surgical Site Infection and she is enthusiastic about working with clinical areas to develop surveillance mechanisms and to prevent patients from acquiring infections following surgery or interventional procedures.
