Infection control

Working together to tackle Healthcare Associated Infections


Coming into hospital can be an anxious time for patients for lots of reasons, including concerns about infection control.

The Northern Trust would like to assure you that we take the prevention and control of infection very seriously - all our staff receive regular training in infection prevention and control.

Preventing infection requires everyone to work together including the patients and visitors who come into our hospitals. We all have a role to play and patients and visitors can help us prevent and control healthcare associated infections, therefore please read our simple visitor and patient guidelines.
